Zucchini and Grape Tomato Saute

Sometimes, an idea pops up on the fly.

And magic happens.

Such is the case with my Zucchini and Grape Tomato Saute.

I make zuccs all the time for somethin’ somethin’ on the side.

But they get kind of blasé after awhile.

Fortunately, a pint of grape tomatoes was sitting pretty on the counter just waiting to be added to one of my creations.

And it worked out perfectly.

Love when that happens.

The dish is bursting with color and flavor.

Zucchini and Grape Tomato Saute
4-6 servings as a side

3 medium zucchini, sliced into ¼-inch discs
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
½ small white onion, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
3/4 to 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved

In a large wide pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add zucchini. Season with salt and pepper. Saute for about 10 minutes.

Push zucchini over to one side, making room for the onion and garlic. Add onion and garlic to the empty space in your pan. Adjust pan so that heat is under the onion and garlic. Saute for about a minute. Then, toss with the zucchini. Cook for a few minutes more.

Add grape tomatoes. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.

  1. Yum. A house fav here. To me, zucchs marry well with fresh marjoram. Easy to grow in garden. We plant all three and eat it almost daily in the summer.
