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. Another summer side dish I love is this easy Grilled Zucchini recipe. And when I have more time, this Zucchini Lasagna is my all time favorite!

Tommy is not a fan of zucchinis but he raved about this dish and and asked me to keep it on rotation. It’s pretty basic but delicious this time of year! It would also be wonderful over pasta or serve it with anything you are grilling from chicken to pork chops to fish! This is great for dairy-free diets as well as Whole30 and Vegetarian.


  • The ingredients are simple, if you wish to replace the Herbs de Provence you can use basil, oregano or Italian seasoning instead.
  • Any variety of tomatoes will be great as long as they are vine ripe, grape tomatoes or beefsteak are great options.
  • Along with zucchini and tomatoes you can also add some yellow squash.

  1. I needed to use up some zucchini and tomatoes. I followed the recipe using five campari tomatoes and Italian seasoning instead of the Herbes de Provence. Served over cooked spaghetti noodles and topped with grated parmesan cheese. My husband has requested that I make this again, but with mussels. Thanks for a delicious and healthy recipe!

  2. This is one of most favorite re ipes. Love it. 💖

  3. Excellent , great side dish. I used 8.5 ounce zucchini and cut up 3 oz of tiny tomatoes–used all the garlic, just misto spray, and the herbs–we loved it. Great with braised chicken thighs with leeks and mushrooms. Great over some noodles too. I used some Livia ( 15 calorie per serving noodles) Will make often Favorite ( two of us ate all of this) I sprinkle with fresh chopped herbs over everything too.

  4. I loved this recipe! I’ll be making this all summer long with tomatoes and zucchini from my garden. 

  5. DELISH and easy!  Going into the rotation. Thanks Gina!

  6. I made this last night and we not only ate it, we INHALED IT! It was absolutely delicious! I definitely plan to make this again!

  7. I made this and put your turkey meat balls and your marinara on top. It was so fresh and delicious. I added crushed red pepper and parm on top. Delicious comfort food  filled with veg and low carb. Winning!
