I made this last night and added cooked thin spaghetti at the very end, loosened it with a bit of pasta water, and topped with a sprinkle of pecorino romano cheese. Absolutely delicious!

There's just something about the combination of cooked tomatoes and zucchini that always seems to work great together. The cooking gives them such a great texture and brings out the sweetness of the vegetables. And since this is full of nutritious veggies, you don't have to feel guilty about going back for seconds! When serving with pasta, I might chop the veggies up smaller to make it easier to toss evenly together, and use fresh basil leaves at the end.

Delicious way to enjoy summer's bounty! Even my veggie skeptics loved it!

Yum! Easy, tasty & so pretty! I like to serve this with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.

This is a yummy combo of my favorite summer veggies. It was a big hit in my house. I have a feeling I'll be making it all summer!

Love, love LOVE veggies and this super simple skillet recipe is ready in no time at all!

LOVE this combination of veggies. So easy and flavorful!

I am a huge fan of zucchini and am always looking for a new way to prepare it. This one was fabulous and my entire family loved it (which doesn't happen often). I will definitely be making this one often!

Omitted the salt, reduced the basil, and reduce the tomatoes to two. My wife and i loved it.

fixed for dinner, loved it. did added diced potatoes and sliced polish sausage, super!

What a tasty idea for a skillet supper.

I made this last night and it was soooo good! I typically make a new recipe the first time as stated but did sub olive oil for the vegetable oil. The dish was simply delicious and had excellent flavor. Definitely a keeper and can't wait til summer for an abundance of zucchini and tomatoes!

This is good with some cooked elbow macaroni tossed in also!

Hey grannyblu--Don't quite understand what you are doing with the wash tub but if it is galvanized (coated with zinc)--dangerous for your health--Read this:

I saute the zucchini right along with onion & garlic usually simmer with the tomatoes about 30 minutes Everything comes out fully cooked & soft

Been making this for years with zucchini & tomatoes from my garden have a little wash tub with holes drilled in bottom for drainage,and have fresh basil & oregano Delicious

Delicious recipe especially for anyone who is not that fond of zucchini.

I have never been a big zucchini fan. A friend gave me some home grown zucchini so I decided to try this recipe. It was DELICIOUS!!! I will definately be using this recipe again. (I did let it cook a little longer than the recipe calls for because I like my veggies soft).

When I make this I top it with Parmesan Cheese. Gives it a richer taste. I usually just use tomatoes, onions and zucchini. Also, zucchini needs to cook longer. I was making cabbage rolls and had some of this left over which I ground up and added to the meat mixture.

I do this with fresh green beans also. Sometimes I use dry italian salad dressing mix for the spices and salt. Super easy and quick!!
