Oh my goodness! This was fabulous!! After reading the recipe, I immediately when to work making this for my husband and my lunch just now.....I had just picked fresh tomatoes and zucchini from our garden this morning . I chopped 1 extra tomato than the recipe called for so I'd have more juice for dunking the Italian herb bread in that I had . And I added fresh chopped cilantro from my herb plant. I served it over spaghetti and put some of the sauce in a small bowl for dunking the bread. We loved it!! I will try sausage in it the next time as someone else suggested...... so many things you can do with this .....would be good on chicken breast & cheese sprinkled on....yummm! But is very tasty as is also ! Definitely going in my recipe box!

We're so glad you enjoyed this recipe! Thanks for sharing! :)

I read irwind45150's comment and took it a little farther... Didn't have fresh tomatoes so I used canned diced... instead of Jimmy Dean I used Italian Sausage... Taste??? WONDERFUL!!!

Add green peppers, eggplant and a little fresh Parmesan and you have a basic ratatouille. (Add eggplant and tomatoes last so they don't get mushy). I give that 5 stars!

This is a "GREAT" combination. Love to fix this in the oven in those "EXTRA-LARGE" zucchini during growing season and making what we call "Zucchini Boats". Our recipe is almost identical except we delete the olive oil, add a little "Jimmy Dean's" Sausage Crumbles, and mix in some shredded Italian cheese blend, and bake it about 35 to 45 minutes. During the last 5 minutes we top it with more shredded Italian Blend or Cheddar cheese. Have some garlic bread on the side, and you have a meal that is DELICIOUS. (I must note ... I use the turkey sausage crumbles .... the rest of my family uses pork sausage crumbles.)

This looks good, i think it would be great over spaghetti or rigatoni with some French bread.

I believe it would be really good as a pasta sauce.

yes, I use this recipe for the base of my veggy lasangia...hmm..how do you spell lasangia..tee hee

very Good, my family loves it

Mr.Food-could you please tell me if I can CAN this recipe,while my veggies are still garden fresh? please please please

Can this be canned? Id love to try that!!! I can a lot,so think I will . It is great!!

would this be best hot or cold? Could I put it over say linguini pasta? If cold, it could be a great side dish.

I also added onions, garlic and also fresh mushrooms (all saute like-lee in olive oil)

Delicious I brown my zucchini with garlic & onions then add 1 t oregano and 1 t basil few red pepper flakes too. I also add some water after browning I sometimes use a can of tomatoes cut up instead of fresh... brown Italian sausage & mix it all in kind of like a stew Really good with hot crusty Garlic bread fresh from the oven

It is good...I like it ..it is healthy and low calorie.

Love, Love, Love this!
