Zucchini and Carrots With Garlic and Herbs

Total Time

I 'adopted' this recipe in August 2005. I have made it and think it is a great recipe as written. I hope you like it as much as I did. I also found it went well with a little lite sour cream spooned on top of each serving for a change. The following words come from the original person who posted this recipe: "A nice summer-time side dish. I suggest cutting the zucchini a bit larger than the carrots, since it cooks faster. Substitute dried herbs if you don't have fresh."

Very simple to make, has nice color, and looks great on the table. I added some onion chopped large, and a bit of spicy pepper blend seasoning to give it some extra kick. Tastes pretty darn good!
