Fresh Zucchini Bruschetta…Molto delizioso!

Molto delizioso is an Italian equivalent of ‘very delicious’, and indeed this side dish is just that!

Saturday is the big day in Jackson Hole for the Farmer’s Market on the Town Square. This past Saturday was a very hectic weekend in the town center of JH with lots of wonderful activities happening. But I had little time and needed to stay clear of the congestion so I opted for Sloane’s market stand…the original Jackson Hole Farmer’s Market next to Twigs in the Movie Works Plaza. So glad I did!

The market had everything one would need to make a fresh and delicious side dish to complete an easy dinner with friends and kids. We grilled chicken and elk burgers, threw some sweet potato frites in the oven and created the most flavorful zucchini side dish that reminds one of bruschetta. In addition to this tasty treat — you also get A TON of benefits from zucchini.

Zucchini Bruschetta

Simply cut a zucchini in half lengthwise and trim a little off the bottom of the each half so that it can sit still on a baking dish.
Scoop the seeds out of the center with a spoon.
Make a mixture of crushed garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper and brush on the open surface of each zucchini.
Cut the grape tomatoes in half and place into the grooves of the zucchini.
Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes.
Remove & place diced fontina or/and mozzarella in between the tomatoes.
Return them to the oven under the broiler until golden and bubbling.
Remove and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with grated parmesan.

Wah Lah!

Lots of variations to be had here. Pesto, marinara sauce, even an olive tapenade could be interesting. You could doctor this recipe up to create a gluten and vegan free side dish if desired. No matter what direction you take this simple side dish, it is guaranteed to please your palette.
