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?
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.
