Last summer my zucchini plants went berzerk!! (Bezerk? bezurk? You know what I mean) They grew like crazy! This year’s crop didn’t do so well… I don’t want to talk about it. Anyhow, last year’s crop: Of course I could have spent an entire day shredding the zucchini and baking 1,001 loaves of zucchini bread but I decided instead to experiment with it and have some savory fun! The result? This super easy and delicious dish can be either used as a main dish or a side dish.
Here’s what you need:
2 medium sized zucchini
1 jar of marinara
2 garlic cloves
Here’s what you do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray the bottom of a 8×8 baking dish to grease.
On the top of that, grate a nice amount of Parmesan. Don’t be shy, go on and grate a mound of it!
Sprinkle the top with the dried basil and oregano.
Now, I eat this in heaping spoonfuls all by itself with a slice of sourdough bread to dip in the sauce (DELISH) but I have also served it on top of pasta, on top of chicken, on the side of white fish, or even toss in a few meatballs. It is SO delicious and versatile.
