Story
One of my least favorite things in life is a soggy zucchini. How a grilled floppy piece of zucchini served on the side is supposed to be enjoyable beats me. Adding a bit of flavor and tomato makes a world of difference. In this particular recipe, I’m reminded of my trip to Italy (or was it an episode of Lidia’s Italy). If you’re a zucchini-hater, try this out, it just may change your mind!
