It Only Takes a Minute Girl To Fall in Love, Let's Fall in Love

Another Veggetti and Clam Sauce success story.  This time with the additions of anchovies melted into the olive oil and onions and topped with crisped turkey bacon slices (optional).
Can't say enough about getting just the right firmness on the zucchini.  Just like with the pasta, you want them al dente and not one bit mushy.  Since they are so thin, it only takes a minute to cook.  Use canned clams and tomatoes for a super fast kick ass supper!

Zucchini with Clam Sauce

  • 2 cans chopped clams 
  • 1/3 cup chicken stock
  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1/2 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 Vidalia onion
  • 5 cloves of garlic chopped
  • bunch of fresh parsley
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • red pepper flakes
  • parmesan
  • 3 anchovies
Saute onion and garlic on low in a wok for a few minutes to become aromatic, add the anchovies and stir until dissolved.  bring up the heat, add the zucchini and stir about 3 minutes.  while nice and hot add the chicken stock and tomatoes. stir and heat through. turn off heat, top with red pepper flakes and shaved parmesan, salt and pepper and maybe an extra drizzle of olive oil. For a crunchy treat, top with sliced turkey bacon crisps.
