Sautéed Zucchini & Tomatoes

Looking for a meatless dish that not only taste good, but is filling and easy to make? Give my zucchini and tomato dish a try. Not exactly a fat-free dish, nor will it leave you feeling heavy. Just a simple and flavorful dish to go with chicken or have by itself.

You can leave the skin on the zucchini or remove. Being that i am on a special diet i had to remove it.


1-2 pounds zucchini, sliced 1/8 inch thick, skin removed
3 garlic cloves. Minced
1 medium onion cut in half then sliced.
1 can chopped tomatoes (32oz)
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
4 oz grated parmesan cheese
Salt & pepper to taste








Using a large skillet heat oil over medium heat and add minced garlic and sliced onion, cook for several minutes but don’t burn or scorch barely soften.




Add tomatoes and lower heat to med-low cover and cook tomatoes till they break up and become almost sauce consistency, about 8 minutes.



Add sliced zucchini and using a large slotted spoon or tongs and make sure zucchini is well covered with tomatoes. Cover and simmer 10 minutes.




Remove cover and season with salt, pepper and Italian seasonings.

Turn off heat and sprinkle with mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
