Do you have any end of the year zucchini (or other summer squash) and tomatoes that need used up? Then look no further! This recipe is so amazing, I wish I had known about it to make it all summer long. It is a simple combination of sauted zucchini, onions, garlic and seasonings that are combined with fresh garden tomatoes and smothered in cheese. The beauty is that it comes together in about fifteen minutes max. How can you go wrong with that? I made this last night as a side dish and it was easily the best part of the meal. Here’s to hoping I remember it next year when my zucchini and tomatoes are at their peak!!

    there’s just something so enticing about melted cheese. it could adorn the ugliest thing in the world and i’d still be sucked in. not that your zucchini is ugly, of course–on the contrary, i’m loving it all! :)

    Hi!I love your blog! Actually, I probably should have said “Hi” earlier but I’ve been shy. Anyway, at the suggestion of one of my readers, I have started my own food/cooking blog. I’ve included a link to your blog in my sidebar. I hope that was okay. If not, please let me know and I’ll remove it asap.Thanks!

    Mel – simple, and excellent! I made this tonight, and served it on top of pasta. I used red onions, I added in quartered button mushrooms, and used fresh oregano. Excellent! Even my husband who doesn’t like zucchini liked it. Thank you!

    When will I learn to stop doubting you? Honestly, I have never liked zucchini my whole life. But, I grew it in my garden this year for some unknown reason so now I need to use it. And this was AMAZING. It’s the herbs and the onions and the cheese. Makes the zucchini taste subline. I will absolutely be making this again and again. Thanks for the great idea Mel!

    We had this as a side dish for dinner last night and we loved it. My husband, who is not a big fan of vegetables, had seconds! I used fresh mozzarella, cubed, because I had some – and it worked fine. Yummy! Thanks!!

    We make this a lot in the summer, adding more tomatoes to make it a bit more saucy, and 1 lb. pork sausage to make it a main dish using both parmesan and mozzarella. It is truly delicious.
