I tried to make it myself last night then after dinner I received a recipe from them. Mine was pretty close except I used canned petite diced tomatoes and added some julienned carrots as well. Also I'm out of fresh basil so I had to use dried. It turned out pretty good. Here is a copy of the email Carabas sent me.



****Hello, and thank you for joining us while on vacation. My name is Miguel Morales, and am the proprietor for Carrabbas of Chattanooga. The dish you are interested in, is a lightly sautéed French fry cut fancy zucchini. It is sautéed in chopped white onion, garlic (fresh), and salt and pepper (this is sautéed in great quality extra virgin olive oil). Once zucc. Is sautéed lightly, add crushed roma tomatoes, olive oil infused with chipped garlic, fresh torn basil, and salt and pepper to season. The trick to this dish is not overcooking your zucc. you want your vegetable to still have a little bite. Happy cooking, and let me know how it turns out… Miguel Morales****

Not sure about Carabas but here's a similar one from Cooks.com that might get you started.

ZUCCHINI VEGGIE SIDE DISH
2 med. zucchini, cut in bite-size
2 tbsp. butter
1 can mushrooms
1 qt. tomatoes
1 tsp. garlic powder
Saute zucchini until tender in butter. Add mushrooms, tomatoes and garlic powder. Heat and serve.

There's no elevator to reach success...you have to use the stairs.

I'm sorry I can't help as I have not tried that dish. Perhaps you could contact the restaurant in Florida and ask what is in it. I do know that the menues for various Carraba's vary depending on what is local.

A couple months ago I was in Florida at a Carabas. My veggie side dish was zucchini. It was julienned and had garlic and tomatoes in it. It wasn't a pasta dish it was just a veggie side. I would like to make it at home but I'm not sure what all was in it.
Has anyone had this or know how to make it? I would love to make it at home.
