Sautéed Zucchini with Plum Tomatoes




This simple side dish recipe is a great way to use your summer garden zucchini and tomatoes. Use a good extra virgin olive oil and fresh tomatoes for the best flavor. My husband raved about this and asked me to make it again tomorrow. This would be wonderful over pasta!

  9. Thanks for this recipe. I had created a very similar recipe and used 1/2 cup of low-salt jarred tomato sauce. In addition to the sauce, I added zucchini, tomatos, and red and green peppers. I topped it with a dollop of low-fat ricotta cheese. Delicious!

    I do this a lot, however, I also add diced onion to the sautée and season with fresh dill or dill weed instead of the Herbes de Provence. If pressed for time, I have been known to put all of the ingredients together and do them in the microwave. It makes a surprisingly tasty dish. I think the olive oil and herbs make the dish. Great with anything, but especially enjoy this as a side dish with fish.

  13. I made this the other night and it was great. I couldnt find plum tomatoes and I didnt have the herbes de provence, so I used caprese tomatoes and I just added some italian seasoning. It was really good. I had also made the cilantro lime rice and served the zucchini over the rice, it was delicious. I actually liked them together versus eating each seperate. I had also made the baked chicken with dijon and lime, which went well with everything. I will definitely make this again.

  15. I made this delicious recipe last night. I wanted it as an entree, so I added med. shrimp and put it on 1 cup of whole wheat angel hair. Yummy and very filling!

  16. Great idea adding shrimp, This is really a delicious recipe, especially with summer tomatoes. Adding chicken or shrimp and serving it over pasta makes this a wonderful complete meal.

  17. Love the idea of adding shrimp. I'll have to remember this. Thanks for the recipe- we had it with the chicken picatta. Yum!

  18. Sooooooooo amazing! This would be great as a main dish over pasta or rice. I increased the garlic to 6 cloves and did 3 medium zucchini to 15 campari tomatoes. Add a shake or two of crushed red peppers. YUM!! Cooking time and ingredients spot on YUM!

  21. Where can I find Herbes de Provence?

    ReplyDelete
  22. They sell it in the spice aisle.

  23. So I'm confused is the calories 91.8 or 55? I see a comment where you said it was updated but it is no different today?

  24. This was so good! I did add 1/3-1/2c tomato sauce to sauce it up a bit more because I put it over whole wheat angel hair. I didn't have plum tomatoes on hand and used grape tomatoes instead, so it needed this. VERY good! I also put it into the WW recipe builder and it came up 2p+ for me. Thanks for all of your great recipes!
