Extended Life for: Zucchini, Onions, Garlic with Sun dried Tomatoes, Artichokes, Tomato
A couch surfer recently brought us the most gorgeous and gigantic zucchini, so we saved it from any Idahoan animals that may have come and snagged it. The artichokes are from a grocery store that offers goods which are past their expiration date or in the case of the artichokes, living in a dented can. As for the other goods, we salvaged them, it's the freegan in us.
1 Large Zucchini
1 Tomato, Diced
1 Can Artichoke Hearts, Drained and quartered
Spoonful of Garlic with Sun-dried Tomoto (or two minced cloves of garlic)

In bowl mix tomato, artichoke, onions, vinaigrette, garlic and bread crumbs. Place half of mixture in each half of zucchini and drizzle with extra vinaigrette if desired. Sprinkle cheese on top.
