Sauteed Zucchini

Rated as 4.64 out of 5 Stars

"This is a really easy recipe that tastes great. Fresh veggies in a light sautee. You can add a cup of cooked pasta if you wish to give it more heft as a side dish. We always make too much pasta during the week so this is a great way to work through some of the leftovers."

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the onion in the melted butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic; cook and stir 1 minute more. Stir the tomatoes and 1/4 cup water into the mixture; cover. Cook until the tomatoes have reduced slightly, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour another 1/4 cup water into the skillet, and add the bouillon cube; stir until the bouillon is dissolved. Add the zucchini; continue cooking until the zucchini is tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with black pepper to serve.

I am not normally a fan of zucchini, but I found that I actually like it when prepared this way! It was a little watery, but I did use a can of drained, diced tomatoes because I didn't have any ...

Amazing!! Perfect use for the fresh veggies I have abundant in my garden right now. I use a mix of zucchini and yellow squash. Have made this several times this summer and will make it many more.

Very tasty. I used boxed chicken stock (no MSG) instead of bullion cubes and canned petite diced tomatoes. I added some feta cheese as a tasty garnish. Yum!
