Description

This is a quick recipe I threw together one day trying to use up a never ending supply of zucchini from our garden. It is quick to “toss” together, looks great and has turned out to be one of our favorite summer side dishes.

Ingredients

  • 5 whole Medium Sized Zucchini
  • 14 ounces, fluid Can Pomodorini (Cherry Tomatoes)
  • 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ⅓ cups Fresh Chopped Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Italian Seasoning
  • 2 whole Peeled & Minced Garlic Cloves
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 dash Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1-½ cup Stale Bread Cubes
  • ½ cups Pecorino Cheese Grated
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest
  • ½ whole Red Chile Pepper
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove top and tail from zucchini and slice into thin rounds. Place into a mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients excluding the breadcrumb mixture and mix well with your hands. Pour the zucchini mixture into an oven-proof casserole dish large enough to hold everything, cover, and bake for about 30 minutes or until the zucchini are fork tender.

While the zucchini are baking, place the bread cubes in a food processor and pulse until they become coarse crumbs. Add the chile pepper, lemon, cheese, salt and pepper and pulse until well mixed but still coarse. Add the parsley and olive oil and pulse once more just until the parsley is chopped.

Uncover the zucchini and sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the top. Return the casserole to the oven without a cover and bake an additional 15 minutes or until the top is crisp and brown. Serve.

I’ve made this twice and both times it turned out beautifully.

One note: You need to eat this within about 30 minutes of it being done or the crunchy topping gets soggy.

A great recipe!

Sounds great and it can be made for my Grandson who needs everything to be Gluten Free, I’ll just sub the bread crumbs with GF ones. Thanks
