"This is just like Nonni used to make! Fresh zucchini, onions, and tomatoes sauteed with Italian seasonings make a perfect complement to any meal. Serve alone or over rice." — COLEE576

white onion, sliced into thin wedges
1 (14.5 ounce) can
diced tomatoes with juice
Great recipe. I only made a few changes. My zucchini are large. So I used 1 large zucchini and cut into 1" slices, then cut the slices into 4 pieces. 1 TBSP of salt is too much so I salt and peppered the pieces. I sauteed 1 sliced vidalia onion in olive oil. I mixed 1 TBSP of basil and 2 minced garlic cloves in a can of diced tomatoes. When the onion was soft, I added the zucchini and tomatoes. Cooked over low-medium heat for 20-25 minutes. Stirring occasionally. Then sprinkled with generous amount of parmesan. (probably 1/4 - 1/2 cup) Mixed all together and cooked another 5 min. Not only is it good that night, but left overs are just as tasty.
Athough this tasted alright, the recipe calls for entirely too much olive oil. I was forced to treat my veggies like a pizza and dab all of the oil off! Gross!
This was fantastic! I made it as described, using vidalia onions and adding freshly crushed garlic from 2 cloves. I served it over linguine and it was a hit - even my 12 yr son loved it! I've made it with chunks of Italian Turkey Sausage and served over rice, also.
I have made this before. It is so yummy! You can also put all your ingredients in foil and cook on the BBQ for about 20 minutes. Also try with your favorite spaghetti sauce instead of the tomatoes and definately add some garlic.
This was the first time the family has had zucchini. Someone gave a bag full of them to my husband, so I had to look up a recipe for them, and I'm glad this is the one I chose! As one other reviewer had mentioned, I only used enough olive oil to properly saute the onions. I didn't have any italian seasoning, so I added some basil, salt, pepper, and garlic salt. I didn't measure the seasonings, just added to my liking. I also didn't have a can of diced tomatos so I added some tomatoe sauce and I cut up some fresh tomatoes. I will be making this one again!
This was really good! Being a confirmed tweaker, I added garlic, some crushed red pepper and used basil rather than Italian seasoning since I had some fresh. Yum! Further proof that good food doesn't have to be complicated.
I was looking for a zucchini/tomato recipe I remembered my mother making... this is it! It is delicious. The only chages I made were cutting back on the salt (I only added a few shakes) and added a little fresh ground pepper. Also, I didn't use as much oil, as suggested by another review, I just used enough to saute the onions. Love, love, love it, and easy, too!
I have made a similar dish (sans sugar) only, instead of serving over rice, I used the zucchini combination instead of meat to make lasagna. Even my kids loved it, and we're not vegetarians!
