Here's a Summer favorite that's quick, easy and so delicious!
Perfect for those busy Summer days and a tasty way to use your zucchini.
Fresh from the Garden Zucchini and Tomatoes
Ground Beef or Ground Pork (or use half beef and half pork, my favorite)
One Yellow Onion
Tuscan Italian Seasoning (Costco)
Cheddar Cheese, grated
Cut the zucchini into rounds if small, quarter the rounds if the zucchini is larger.
Cut tomatoes into strips or dice.
Brown the ground meat. Add salt to taste.
Saute zucchini, onion and Italian seasoning in a bit of olive oil until almost tender.
Add zucchini and onion to the ground meat skillet.
Add fresh tomatoes and Italian Seasoning, gently tossing to warm tomatoes through. This just takes a couple of minutes, don't over cook.
Sprinkle grated cheese lightly over the top. Place the skillett in the oven under the broiler just long enough that the cheese begins to slightly brown. (Leave oven door open.)
Sprinkle lightly with Paprika and serve!
I never measure amounts for this dish. Actually that's how I love to cook but it can be rather challenging to share the recipe. For a pound of ground meat, use about a couple of cups of zucchini and tomatoes, and a couple of tablespoons of Italian seasoning. This will make enough for about 4-6 servings depending on how hungry you are. Pair this dish with some yummy whole grain bread and you have a satisfying supper!
