Exceptionally good supper! We were in the midst of painting, and got hungry. I had this fixed so fast! I uped the garlic to 4 cloves, love that stuff! Let the zucchini get just crisp tender, and added the fresh tomatoes. SO good. All we added was a loaf of italian bread and glasses of a red rose. Very good!! Thanks Terri!!
