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.
