Zucchini and tomatoes are my two favorite summer time veggies. Well corn is up there too but zucchini and tomatoes take top spots.
They also go well together and I use them to make a simple side dish that takes only minutes to prepare.
I eat this often at lunch and sometimes again at dinner. I know that summer and it’s bounty only stick around for a short time so I try to get in as much as I can.
Especially tomatoes! A fresh summer tomato is better than candy.
I used little wee cherry tomatoes but you can certainly use whatever tomato you have on hand, just chop it up!
Measurements are guesstimates because amounts can be adjusted to suit your tastes and what you have on hand.
Andrea’s Zucchini and Tomato Saute
- 1 Medium Zucchini, chopped into bite-sized peices
- 1/2 Pint of Cherry Tomatoes, halved OR 1 Large Tomato, chopped
- 2 tsp Olive Oil
- Red Pepper Flakes
- Italian Seasoning
- Grated Parmesan
In a medium sized skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in zucchini and seasonings. Saute until the zucchini starts to get tender, then add in the tomato. Saute for about two minutes until the tomato is just heated through.
Remove from heat and serve. Sprinkle each portion with the parmesan.
Remember the seasonings are up to you! You can make a lot or a little. It’s also great cold and spooned onto some lovely bread. If you want, you can even add a little chopped onion in there for some kick.
A simple and quick way to use up some of that produce leftover from summer’s harvest.
