Zucchini Dish

Zucchini and Pesto:
This started because I wanted pesto, but I'm not a big pasta fan. Without a food processor pesto is a pain to make. I don't really know what this morphed into - some side dish I suppose?

2 zucchini
3 Cloves are garlic minced
3 Tablespoons pinenuts
3 sprigs of basil
2 Tablespoons chopped sun dried tomatoes

1. Cut zucchini into thin rounds, spray with olive oil and sprinkle with some minced garlic. Put it in the oven for 5-10 minutes at 400 degrees. Watch them because you want them to dry out a little, not get too mushy. You might want to flip them.

2. Chop everything else into a very fine mince, or put it all in the food processor with some oil.

3. Saute the mixture in a large skillet with some oil until warm. Add the cooked zucchini and mix together. Cook on medium for 5 minutes.

4. Serve warm with some fake parm if desired.

Oh my goodness, that looks delicious! Very pesto-esque... You're right, I can't imagine pesto without a food processor.

I made this zucchini dish and it was so good! I didn't have sun-dried tomatoes and used regular ones, but it was still really yummy! Thanks so much for the recipe!
