My grandmother used to make this as I was growing up. I never liked squash but have grown to love this dish. I have tweaked it over the years as my grandmother never seasons anything.
- 4 -6 zucchini, sliced
- 1 lb bacon
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 3 -4 tomatoes, quartered
- garlic, minced, to taste
- salt & pepper, to taste
- Cut bacon into approximately 1-inch size pieces and fry until crisp. Add chopped onion and sauté for a few minutes to lightly brown.
- Add sliced zucchini, minced garlic, salt, pepper and stir.
- Cover and lower heat. Simmer on low heat, stirring occasionally until squash gets soft.
- Add quartered tomatoes and simmer for 5-10 minutes more.
This is wonderful. I often serve this over rice or mix in with spaghetti noodles and top with a generous amt of parmasen cheese. I think it needs a lot of garlic, so put more in than you think you need. The squash are so bland, they need it. Enjoy!
