The refrigerator light goes on...

This goes well with almost any dish, but especially a steak or roasted pork main course. The zucchini is simple to prep. Cut the stem end off and make three slices lengthways so you have 4 slices. Stack two slices and cut lengthways three times again. Do this with all four slices and then cut crossways for a large dice.

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

This recipe does not make very good leftovers.

1 tsp olive oil
2 medium sun dried tomato slices
1 Tbsp pine nuts
2 medium zucchini (large dice)
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried thyme leaves
fresh ground black pepper

Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and after about a minute add the sun dried tomato and pinenuts.

Cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat if necessary so that the pinenuts don't brown too much -- they should be a light golden brown.

Add the zucchini, salt, thyme and pepper. Increase the heat to medium high. Cook, tossing frequently, until the zucchini just begins to brown on all sides and is slightly soft.
