I had this recipe picked for the 'You show me yours' thread and found out I'd chosen the 'wrong' chef, so made something else...BUT I wasn't going to let this one pass me by and made it tonight instead. Great flavour combinations with the apple adding a nice amount of sweetness. Great colours too.

I had almost exactly 1.5 pounds of zuchini to use up tonight and found this recipe. I liked the flavors of the apple and zuch. together. The tomatoes, to me, seemed a little odd. Not bad, just tasted a little different. A good easy healthy side-dish. Oh, and I used 2 tsp. olive oil instead of the butter.
