Herbed Zucchini Bundles

The presentation for this vegetable dish is impressive and the flavor is delicious.

Serves 8
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Total time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound zucchini -- cut into 3" strips
  • 2 medium red bell pepper, sliced into rings
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt and pepper, freshly ground

    Instructions:

    Divide zucchini strips into equal bundles and arrange through the pepper rings, place in a baking dish. Melt butter, marjoram and oregano in a small saucepan. Salt and pepper to taste
    Pour herb mixture over zucchini bundles and place into 350 degree preheated oven. Cook until tender about 20 minutes.

    Terri’s Tips:

  • You can substitute fresh herbs for dried herbs, only use 1/2 of amount when using dried herbs as they are stronger
  • Leaving the skin on the zucchini provides more nutrients and color

    Cooking Wiser:

  • The salt can be omitted and you won’t miss it; the herbs provide great flavor
