|Zucchini Regina a la Mattea
|Recipe contributed by Mattea Francesco
- 2-3 medium zucchini, chopped small
- 2 chopped garlic
- 1 large chopped onion
- 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1 cup Romano cheese, grated
- 1/2 cup chopped green olives
- 1 tablespoon capers (rinsed & chopped)
- 1 diced large fresh tomato
- Pinch of hot pepper flakes
|Sauté in 3 tablespoons olive oil the zucchini, onions and garlic until tender/soft (not mushy). Stir in tomatoes, capers, olives and hot pepper flakes to taste. Place 1 tablespoon oil in casserole dish and layer 1/2 of the mixture. Mix breadcrumbs/cheese and spread it on the zucchini mix in the casserole. Top with the last of the zucchini mixture and top with remainder of breadcrumb/cheese mix. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. This is a very tasty side dish to any meal. Also makes an excellent filling for a sandwich on crusty bread (with a slice or two of soprasatta or salami or as a topping for bruschetta). This recipe is very forgiving. You can use as much of any ingredient that you like and it will still be very delicious and versatile.
