Italian Zucchini & Tomato Skillet

We love this recipe and when I say "we" I am including my 3 year old nephew, my 7 year old niece and the pickiest vegetable eater of all...Michael. The consensus among those three is that it tastes like pizza. I hope you give it a try and that you like it! Feel free to adjust the seasonings to your own tastes - I think we always end up adding more or less of the things we really like :)

Italian Zucchini and Tomato Skillet
{aka Pizza Veggies}


Olive Oil (enough to coat the bottom of a skillet)
1 clove minced garlic (I used the pre-minced kind sold in a jar)
2 or 3 medium zucchini, cut in slices and then in half
1 large tomato, or 1 C of cherry tomatoes, cut into half moon circles
1 Tbs parsley
1 Tbs Basil
1 Tbs minced chives
1/2 to 1 Tbs "Jamaican Me Crazy" Sea Salt Seasoning {to taste}

1/2 C {or more!} grated Parmesan cheese


1. In large skillet cook zucchini and garlic for 5 minutes in hot olive oil, over medium heat, stirring often - until zucchini is crisp-tender.

2. Stir in tomatoes and garlic, parsley and basil. Cook one minute more.

3. Add chives and Jamaican Me Crazy. Cook one minute more.

3. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top of dish, remove from heat and let cheese melt.

Looks awesome--we just received pretty much all of those veggies from a friends garden, so it looks like this is our dinner tonight!
