    Shuzbud's Note:

    This is a lovely mediterranean side dish, and healthy too! It's easy to make while your main dish bakes in the oven. If you are on Weight Watchers, count 2.5 points per tablespoon of olive oil that you use. So if you make it as written, the whole recipe contains 2.5 points.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the sundried tomatoes in the 3/4 cup of warm water to soak for around 20 minutes.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, finely slice the onion and cut the zucchini into thin strips.
    3. 3
      Cut the sundried tomatoes into thin strips and return them to the soaking water.
    4. 4
      In a non-stick skillet, heat the oil and stir in the onion. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring (if not using a non-stick skillet, you may need to add more oil to prevent sticking).
    5. 5
      Stir in the zucchini and garlic. At this point, I add 1/2 cup water to "steam" the veggies and reduce the amount of oil used- you may prefer to add another tablespoon of oil rather than water.
    6. 6
      Cook the vegetables for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    7. 7
      Add the sundried tomato strips and their soaking liquid (this provides a lot of the flavour so don't leave it out- if using sundried tomatoes canned in oil, add a little of the liquid from the jar instead).
    8. 8
      Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook 5-10 minutes until the vegetables are soft and the liquid absorbed, still stirring.
    9. 9
      Top with parmesan cheese if desired.
    10. 10
      Serve hot and enjoy!

      We are zucchini lovers and always looking for new ways to serve it - this is wonderful. Have substituted feta cheese for parmesan because it does compliment the sun dried tomatoes. Thanks for submitting.

      What a nice way to have courgettes and healthy too, my tomatoes were in oil and didn't need a lot of soaking as they were quite soft anyway. I didn't bother with the cheese but next time I will give that a go. I served it with Seared Lemon Chicken#393556 and they went very well together. Thank you for posting.

      A tasty and colorful side. We loved the addition of sun-dried tomatoes. Made using chopped onion instead of sliced because I had a whole chopped onion in the frig. Also did not sock the sun-dried tomatoes because mine came is a bag and they were very moist and very sweet. So only miner changes due to working with what we had. Will defiantly be making again. Thanks for the post.
