This was the product of having a bunch of leftover ingredients that were used for other things and loving the result of combining them.
1) 3 medium zucchini
2) 1/2 pint of marinated artichokes (I got mine from the olive bar at Whole Foods.)
3) 1/2 pint of marinated tomatoes (Also from the olive bar at Whole Foods)
4) Fresh thyme and fresh oregano (optional)
5) Sliced genoa salami and/or pepperoni. (Any kind of sliced deli meat would do, but I think some kind of salami, rather than turkey or such, would be best.)
1) Slice the zucchini and then slice the slices, so you end up with what are kind of like pieces of spaghetti, but thicker. It would work with them being thinner too, I just didn’t have it in me to be that diligent with cutting.
2) Heat up 1 stick of butter on high heat. When melted, put the zucchini in and cook until softened, stirring occasionally in the first couple minutes, then more frequently.
3) Add in the artichokes and tomatoes and stir every 15-30 seconds for a few minutes. I also used the wooden spoon that I was using to stir everything to break up the artichoke pieces even more.
4) Throw in the fresh oregano and fresh thyme.
5) Basically cook everything until the whole mixture is soft. Then take off the heat and put into a dish of some sort.
6) Spoon the mixture onto the pepperoni or salami slices and eat one at a time.
