Really easy to make and really simple. Great as a side with beef or chicken. Takes a little while to cook, though, because the acidity of the tomatoes slows the cooking of the zucchini.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a pot and add all ingredients, except the salt. Bring to simmering, then cover and cook over low heat for about 30 minutes, until the zucchini slices are tender. (Add a little tomato juice, vegetable or chicken broth, or water, if the mixture is drying out.) Season with salt and serve.
