Zucchini with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Total Time
Prep 25 mins
Cook 15 mins

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!

This was very good! It was easy to make and went together fairly quickly. It is similar to one that I make using fresh tomatoes instead of sun-dried. In my recipe, I use fresh basil, oregano, and fresh grated parmesan cheese. I think that next time I make this, I might add the spices and cheese for some extra flavor. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe.
