My wonderful SIL gave me this recipe years ago.....only the cooking method is a bit different. My method is: in a skillet saute the chopped zucchini, minced garlic and white onion in 1 T olive oil, then add chopped tomatoes. Cook until heated through. Turn the heat down to low, add spices, salt and pepper. Sprinkle the mixture with fresh parmesan cheese and cover the skillet with a lid, cook until cheese melts. It is fast, easy and tastes really great. I have done this dish with an assortment of colourful tomatoes now available.
