Zucchini with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Chippie1

Total preparation time includes the 20 minute soaking time for the tomatoes. This comes from The Encyclopedia of Italian Dishes and absolutely wonderful. I planted zucchini this year in the garden and it's so plentiful, I have to come up with different ways to prepare it.

Very very nice, simple sophistication -I would certainly serve this to guests. I did however adapt it just for me. Sitting here wanting a little bit of an in between meal filler, I had one 7-8 inch zucchini. I used 1 good sized dried-tomato piece, sliced it and cut the slices in half and enough onion and garlic to suit my taste. A shake of parmesean and....delightful! I'd be inclined to take off half a star for the work involved in chopping enough for 4-6 people, but the recipe is perfect!
