A simple and delicious zucchini skillet with fresh Italian flavors for an effortless weeknight dinner.
When summer squash is in season, I typically have it coming out of the garden daily, and we can't eat it quickly enough. I like to try out many different recipes and ways of cooking zucchini during the summer months, but this skillet is one of my go-to dishes because of its simplicity. Once you try it, I'm sure it will be on regular rotation in your home too.
Zucchini is incredibly versatile, and I love making it when I need a quick and straightforward veggie to pair with the meal I am making.
Serving Ideas and Suggestions
This light zucchini skillet would pair perfectly alongside a comforting entree like Cast Iron Skillet Lasagna for a delicious and filling meal in only 30 minutes.
This recipe would also be a great side dish to Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy or Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo. The refreshing flavors of the zucchini complement the creamy sauce in both dishes. If you want to make a vegetarian meal, you could serve this with One Pot Paneer Tikka Masala.
What is a Good Herb with Zucchini?
This zucchini skillet uses Italian spices and parmesan cheese to make a simple yet flavorful dish. One of my favorite things is making enough to ensure I have leftovers to mix into an omelet the next day.
