For those of you who grow a garden, you know how much zucchini your plants yield every year. I always am wondering what to make with it other then the usual desserts I do. I went out to my garden last night and saw all of my fresh goodies, and put this recipe together. We had it as our vegetable with some grilled chicken and fresh lemonade. It was delicious!
5 medium zucchini
4 T.extra virgin olive oil
4 medium tomatoes
a handful of basil leaves, torn
1/2 a lemon squeezed
salt and pepper to taste
Wash and cut the Zucchini into thick strips. I normally cut mine about the thickness of a french fry.
Cover the pan and let simmer for about 12 minutes until the zucchini are completely soft and the tomatoes have made a good sloshy sauce.
The colors should be bright. You don't want your zucchini yielding a brown color to it at all. You want this dish to look really vibrant. :)
