I was writing blog posts and hopped over to Youtube so I could put a link in a blog post I was writing. I ended us down a rabbit hole as this recipe popped up.
I am DEEP in the throws of ZUCCHINI. I’ve been trying to use it the best I can. I’ve had zucchini fried with veggies almost every night. It’s a favorite of mine but after many meals of it, I’m looking for new ways to eat it.
I’ve made zucchini bread and cakes and treats…I was looking for something different. So…when I saw a soup recipe, I couldn’t resist giving it a try. My only problem…I don’t have many tomatoes from the garden ready. I only had a few cherry tomatoes. I hoped I could find enough ready.
I have two giant overgrown cherry tomato plants outside my back door. I’ve been getting a few cherry tomatoes every day for the last couple of weeks. Cherry tomatoes rank high as one of my favorite food ever…the garden variety warmed in the sun are my favorites. I have one yellow and one red cherry tomato plant. I eat a couple every time I let Rosie out the back door.
Anyway…I checked and did have enough.
This is the video I watched.
I added…a chicken breast to mine. I cut it up and fried it in the pan before I added the zucchini or other veggies. I was having this as a lunch meal so adding the chicken breast made sense to me.
I liked the idea of the broken spaghetti noodles in the soup.
In the video, the cook says the egg and cheese are optional. I did add them….YUM!!
The water in mine cooked down and I let it be that way. Seriously it was so good I had two bowls.
I’m really excited as this Youtuber “Italian Grandma” or Buson-A-Petitti has lots of other zucchini recipes. You can find them HERE. You can bet I’ll be trying more of them.
