Love it! This has become a family favorite that is requested when the zucchini start popping. A can of Italian tomatoes works great whenever the fresh ones aren't quite ready. I also add a bit of crushed red pepper and serve it over spaghetti noodles. Yummy! Even the kids like it!

A very nice side dish--it's very attractive and tastes good. I thought it was a little bland, but also think that subtleness makes it appealing as a side dish accompanying a more flamboyant entree. I used caution adding the basil--not all of us like that much. I put in as much as I thought the crowd here would enjoy.

This was a "fresh and clean" tasting dish and was very enjoyable. I only had one medium red tomato (from the store, yuck!)so I took about 12 yellow cherry tomatoes from the garden to make up the difference. Sadly.. I was also out of parmesan so I made it without cheese. It was still very, very good and refreshing. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe Fluffy! (hehe love the name)
