Zucchini Florentine

Adele McDowell


2 lbs. zucchini

teaspoon salt and dash of pepper

2 med. Size onions, chopped

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. basil

2 T. butter

2 c. canned tomatoes

1-2 finely chopped garlic buds

-1 c. grated sharp cheese



Wash zucchini & cut unpeeled into 1/4" slices.  Saute onions in butter til golden.  Add zucchini & cook over low heat about 8-10 min. stirring frequently.  Add garlic & continue to cook for a few more min.  Add remainder of ingredients & simmer covered 4-5 min. longer.  Place in greased casserole, cover with cheese & bake at 375 degrees for about 20 min. or until the cheese browns nicely.  Mixing a few fine breadcrumbs with cheese will produce a lovely crusty top. 


(Tomatoes with garlic/onion, etc. & increasing herbs will make dish more flavorful.)
