I really can't remember where this came from, but my family always made this when the bountiful crops of Zuchini came in summer. It's so simple.


3-4 Small Zuchinni
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1/4 teaspoon Crushed red pepper
1 15oz can diced tomatoes
1 Clove Garlic
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 pound Browned ground sirloin (optional)


Step 1
Sauté garlic and crushed red pepper in olive oil till fragrant then add thinly sliced rounds of Zuchini and sauté for about five minutes browning a little.

Step 2
Add a can of diced tomatos and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Step 3
Sprinkle the half cup of Parmesan cheese on top of the cooked Zuchini and continue to cook on low until cheese has melted . Then serve.

Step 4
Optional : for a one pan meal with meat brown a pound of ground sirloin seasoned with salt, pepper and oregano.
