So today being a lazy, hazy and kind of gray Sunday, we went food shopping, and we had to eat what ever was in the frig to make more room. There was some more zucchini that needed to be used up. Note to self, zucchini goes pretty far, don't buy six at one time ever again! There is always at least two zucchini left over. And some nice vine tomatoes that were going to be too soft any minute.
Found some Parrano cheese way back in the frig, and grated it on top of the sauce. The Parrano gave it a great flavor! If you ever get a chance to taste Parrano, don't pass it up, it's a fantastic cheese. Sort of like Parmesan, and like Gouda, it's mild and it grates well, melts well, and it's just so good! A friend of mine brought some to a party this past June and we've all been addicted to it ever since.
So I roasted the tomatoes at 350° F for about an hour, with some garlic, salt and pepper and a drizzle of oil. Turned the heat off after an hour and let them sit in the oven to finish roasting, and put them in the food mill to get a very smooth, delicious sauce! I am getting plenty of use from that food mill, should have gotten it years ago! Not to mention that julienne slicer. Just saute the zucchini in a skillet with a little olive oil, salt and pepper for just a few minutes, don't turn it to mush. Then pour the tomato sauce on top and grate some cheese, any kind you like, on top and serve!
4 zucchini, trim the ends and julienne
2 tablespoons olive oil (for the pan)
salt and pepper, to taste
2 cups tomato sauce (homemade or store bought)
1 cup (or more) freshly grated cheese, Parmesan, Cheddar, Parrano, whatever cheese you like!
Saute the zucchini in a bit of olive oil, add a little salt and pepper to taste, don't cook the zucchini too long, you don't want it turning to much. Add the tomato sauce and grate a little cheese on top, and mix it in! Take it off heat and pour it into a nice bowl, and grate some cheese on top and serve!
