Zucchini Skillet

Summertime means lots of zucchini and this is a favorite recipe that the whole family can enjoy.  The flavor combinations are reminiscent of pizza! 


1 Tbsp oil (olive, canola, whatever you prefer)
2 medium size zucchini
1/4 C finely diced onion
2 tsp minced garlic
1 diced tomato
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 C shredded mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Slice zucchini and add to skillet. This recipe is for small to average size zucchini so adjust recipe as needed. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes.  Add onion, garlic and oregano (I use an Italian mix from Penzey's  spices which is delish!) and cook for a few more minutes until lightly browned.  Add tomato (you can use canned diced tomatoes or even salsa if you don't have a tomato on hand). Bring just to a boil and reduce heat to low.  Simmer 3-5 minutes until zucchini is crisp tender. Sprinkle top with cheese and cover with lid until cheese melts. Serve hot.
