  1. Thank you so much for this health-friendly recipe, Cindy! Though I love squash, I’ve never had a zucchini before (may I ask how they taste to you? I like getting multiple opinions). This blend would be a great way to introduce myself to zucchini, as well as enjoy a delicious, sauteed blend! I love to try new and exotic foods. God bless you!

  2. Thanks a lot for this recipe which is not only seems very tasty, but also healthy. I have never eaten zucchini this way. I’m not a fan by the way so I’ve always just eaten them from the grill, but this one seems very tempting and I will definitely give it a try.

    1. I prefer summer squash to zucchini, myself, but I don’t mind the two of them together!  Please let me know how you liked it cooked this way.  (And, by all means, substitute the zucchini with extra summer squash if you want!)

  3. We have our own vegetable garden so are fortunate enough to grow our own zucchini, also known as baby marrow or courgettes, and also our own tomatoes. I have not heard of “grape” tomatoes before, so would be curious to know if they are similar to a baby plum tomato or even smaller.

    I will try your saute. Do you suggest serving it as a side dish, or would you add it to pasta?

    1. Grape tomatoes are the size and shape of grapes, hence the name.  Feel free to substitute any meaty tomato in this recipe!  

      Sometimes, after sauteing, I will mix in some grated cheese, place it in a baking pan and sprinkle some bread crumbs over the top.  Then I bake it until it’s bubbly.  We eat it as a main course when it’s cooked this way. 

      Alternately, you could drizzle some balsamic reduction, butter or whatever your favorite vegetable topping is!   Served over pasta with some grated Parmesan would also be a great idea! Please let me know what you tried and how you liked it.
