I am a big fan of dinners that can be made in one pan (read: less cleanup).
I had gotten these beautiful zucchini, grape tomatoes and fresh basil from the local farmer’s market and wanted to utilize them in the perfect, one pan dish that could be made in 30 minutes.
The real stars of the show were the addition of the black pepper, the Pecorino Romano cheese and the fresh Basil – these ingredients just amped up this dish to the next level of flavor. I have recently been using Pecorino Romano instead of Parmesan because I think it has a more complex flavor profile and the perfect amount of salty bite. If you want to make this dish even more colorful, you can use 1 zucchini and 1 yellow squash (all of which are in season in the summer!).
Also, to stretch this meal, it can be served over some lightly buttered/Olive Oiled pasta!
