ingredients

directions

  • In saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat.
  • Add tomatoes, thyme, bay leaf, sugar, salt and pepper, cook, uncovered, for 7 to 10 minutes or until excess moisture has evaporated.
  • Remove bay leaf.
  • Meanwhile, slice unpeeled zucchini lengthwise into long wide strips about 1/8 inch thick.
  • (Use a veggie slicer or I find a veggie peeler is best, in long single swipes.) In a large frypan, heat 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil over high heat.
  • Add half of the zucchini strips and half of the garlic, sprinkle with a pinch of cayenne, cook, stirring almost constantly for about 3 minutes or until zucchini is tender and golden, being careful not to break it.
  • Remove to paper towel lined baking sheet and keep warm in low oven.
  • Repeat with remaining oil, zucchini, garlic and cayenne.
  • Arrange zucchini mixture on warmed serving platter.
  • Pour sauce over and sprinkle with parmesan.
  • Serve immediately.

    This was good but WAY too much work for me.

    Excellent recipe! I probably used a bit too much cayenne as my mouth is still on fire. I threw in some stuffed pasta with it and omitted the bay leaf because I didn't have one. Something I will make again!

    Wow--a fantastic recipe! My garden produced an abundance of zucchini, and I am much more excited about it now. (I have tired of zucchini breads and cakes... you can only justify their vegetable content so far! :) Flavorful, delicious, and I will make it every summer.
