When zucchinis are on sale and you don't know what to do with them, this is the perfect recipe. You can put it on toasted french bread and eat it as an appetizer or snack. Instead of the fresh herbs you can use a herbes de provence mix if you already have it at home.

- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons plain dried breadcrumbs

A nice, healthy and fresh tasting veggie side dish. Left out the anchovies since I was making this vegetarian for Veg*n Tag as a congrats to Bellinda for being VIP of August!!!!
The family is usually picky when it comes to zucchini but everyone loved this recipe! I used some Herbs de Provence that I brought back from France with me! YUM!!Made for ZWT5, thanks from the Kitchen Witches. :)
