4 Zucchini’s – sliced with skin
1 lb. fresh ground chop meat
2 – 29oz. cans of crushed tomatoes
About 10 cloves of garlic – chopped
1 large handful of fresh Italian parsley – chopped
½ of a red onion – sliced
Dashes of fresh ground black pepper
Dashes of dried oregano
Dashes of Sea Salt
Olive oil for drizzling
Fresh grated Romano cheese
1 box of your favorite spaghetti
In a large heated frying pan drizzle olive oil and place the parsley, half of the garlic and the onion. Let this sauté until the garlic becomes slightly golden. In the meantime heat the griddle with a drizzle of olive oil and place the medallions of zucchini with the other half of the garlic to grill to a beautiful golden color.
Add the tomatoes to the sautéed garlic, parsley and onion and let this slowly simmer. Add a few dashes of all of the seasonings.
In a small separate frying pan sauté the chop meat and then add this to the tomato sauce.
When the zucchini and the rest of the garlic are grilled to a beautiful golden color remove them from the griddle and set them aside.
Prepare the spaghetti as directed. Place the spaghetti in a bowl and drizzle a little olive oil over it, a few dashes of fresh ground black pepper and some grated cheese. Top with the meat sauce and then top with the zucchini and some more grated cheese and another little drizzle of olive oil.
This is a treat with a loaf of Italian bread and a colorful side salad.
Enjoy with Love,
