    My dislike of zucchini, in the face of this delicious and fragrant side dish, went out the window.

      I have made zucchinni & tomatoes many times I was pleased with this recipe. The addition of bacon is a twist & adds a new dimension to the flavor. I used 2 garlic cloves, 2 t of italian seasoning, and added a pinch of sugar.

      When my husband says 'This really is good', he really means it. I made half a recipe and a few minor changes. Rather than adding pinches of each herb, I simply tossed in a generous teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Also used chicken stock instead of water to cover the veggies. Vegetable stock would give a good result, too. The parmesan adds a nice touch. Made and enjoyed for Pick a Chef.

      PAC Fall 2007 ~ My mom makes something very similar to this except without the bacon. I like the flavor that the bacon infuses into it. Used two garlic cloves and about 1/2-1 tsp. each on the herbs except the marjoram as I didn't have any. I did add some salt and pepper to help with the seasoning. I also cooked the bacon first, then added the onion and let that cook for about 5 minutes. I then added the zucchini, tomatoes and herbs and a little water and let simmer about 20-25 minutes. I forgot to sprinkle any cheese on top but will do so with the leftovers. Thanks Angelique!
