Searched for a recipe to use up some zucchini and |I found this. Was going to use it as a side dish to some pork chops...when I went to the freezer I saw a package of tortellini and got inspired. Made recipe as written with tomatoes, onions and zucchini fresh from the garden. Used some extra tomatoes since I was adding pasta. Added cooked tortellini at the very end and simmered for a few minutes...also added a touch of balsamic vinaigrette as fresh tomatoes just screamed for it. Was amazing...will definitely use again as written as a side...thanks for the inspiration.

Yummy and so easy. I used dried Basil because it was all I had. But can not wait to try it with fresh. Great recipe.
