Preheat oven to 350°
Spread the zucchini on non-stick baking sheets and place them in the oven. Turn off the oven and let the zucchini dry out for a couple of hours to remove excess water. This step can be done a day ahead.
In a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, olive oil, garlic, parsley, salt, oregano, eggs and cheese, Coarsely chop the zucchini, add it to the bowl and mix well. Refrigerate the mixture for 20 minutes.
Scoop small amounts of the mixture into your hands and form meatballs the size of a small egg (to make about 18), or make them larger if you prefer. Roll the balls in flour.
Heat the vegetable oil in a large saute pan, over medium-high heat and fry the meatballs, turning them occasionally so they brown evenly - or bake them in an oiled casserole dish in a preheated 350°F oven for 20-25 minutes.
Transfer the meatballs to a serving dish; serve hot with tomato sauce if preferred.
