My mom has made this for us for as long as I can remember, and now I make it when I can during the summer months when zucchini is plentiful!  It’s such a simple dish, but it is so good and full of summer’s fresh produce.  There are only a handful of ingredients that make up this dish: zucchini, tomato, sweet onions, spices and a little brown sugar.

Recipe Tips!

  • This dish is delicious topped with bread crumbs and cheese.  Just put the cooked zucchini mix into an oven safe dish, cover with bread crumbs and grated cheese.  Then put into the oven on broil until the cheese mix is bubbly!  So, so good!
  • I know the brown sugar may seem a little strange, but add it!  Sometimes zucchini can have a bitter taste, and the brown sugar helps to combat that.
  • This dish is great served with BBQ chicken, sausages or flank steak.

  1. That recipe looks delicious! I haven’t cooked with zucchini much.

    By the way, hello blog doppelganger! So funny that we have almost the same name, almost the same blog name, and we live in the same country!

  3. OK, I am definitely making this! I have so much zucchini from my one plant and I am finding it hard to use it all up. THis sounds perfect.

    Thanks so much for linking up to Tasty Tuesdays!

  4. 5 stars
    Loved it. Super easy. I went light on the brown sugar and a little heavy on the salt and pepper to taste and it turned out so good. Great for Summer!
