Holy. Who knew that zucchini and tomato could be soooo good together? We watched JP whip up this dish on his newest show, The Essential Pepin, but honestly thought that the recipe was no big deal. We then ended up having a surplus of tomatoes and zucchinis from other dishes we had prepared, so we made use of leftover ingredients to make this new recipe.
This dish is warm and comforting, full and complete. Remember when the mean food critic in that Disney movie Ratatouille took the first bite of Remy's ratatouille? He was instantly transported to childhood memories of warmth and teared up. That's how we felt when we had the first bite of this. And to think, it's just tomatoes and zucchini! This dish can be partially prepared the day before. Adapted from Jacques Pepin's Essential Pepin: More Than 700 All-Time Favorites from My Life in Food
