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.

About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
