Zucchini & Tomato Saute with Parmesan and Basil

tomato and zucchini saute

CSAs this week are filled with gorgeous green zucchini and now that the early tomatoes are ripening, it is the perfect time to make a super simple, but tasty saute.  Just like the Sauteed Shrimp & Feta dish, this is another dish that is great for any night of the week, because it is very quick and easy and continues to be light and healthy for the summer waistline.

With four main ingredients, it is so simplistic in nature, but it is amazing how much flavor just a few foods can create!  It is delicious served warm right off the stove, but also a great dish to save for next day’s lunch.
