Summer squashes contain a lot of moisture in the center, near their seeds. To reduce the amount of moisture released while quickly sautéing the squashes, cut them in half lengthwise and run the tip of a small spoon down the center of each half to quickly and easily remove the seeds. Then slice as directed in the recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3 zucchini, cut into half-moons
  • 3 yellow summer squashes, cut into half-moons
  • 3 large plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 3 Tbs. thinly sliced fresh basil
  • Watercress leaves for garnish

Directions:

In a sauté/simmer pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the zucchini and squashes and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and just tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cheese and basil. Transfer the vegetables to a serving bowl and garnish with watercress leaves. Serve immediately. Serves 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fresh & delicious & easy!! I took advantage of the early summer bounty at the local market. I often roast these ingredients, but it's hot and I didn't want to turn on the oven. I googled a sauté dish with zucchini, yellow summer squash and tomatoes, and found this recipe. It's a keeper...removing the seeds from the summer squashes is brilliant. The veggies are crisp-tender w/o the soupiness that can often accompany summer squash. (One change - I did add a finely diced shallot to the oil before adding the squash.) It is an utterly gorgeous dish, and it tastes as good as it looks. Do include the freshly grated parm and the thinly sliced basil...the icing on the cake...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful! First of all, this recipe is so visually appealing. The blend of colors is wonderful. It couldn't be easier to prepare. The parm was a nice surprise. Great for a summer side!
