Roasted Zucchini With Tomatoes


Roasting vegetables brings out their sweetness and intensifies their flavors. Tomatoes and zucchini are perfect partners in this tasty recipe. It is best to try and match the zucchini and tomatoes in size for the best results. This dish can be put together ahead of time and simply popped into the oven shortly before dinner. I personally prefer this dish at room temperature, but it could also be served warm.

Buon Appetito!

  1. Hi Deborah! Thank you a lot for sharing your experience with us. And what an experience that is! I’ve been 6 months in Italy and learned so much, your websites is the only one that I’ve followed since I’ve arrived here. Also a funny synchronization since I’ve never cooked anything serious before besides fries. The love the cuisine of Italy for the very popular few ingredients but a healthy and saturating meal.

    Recently I’ve took a recipe from Southern France traditional cuisine named Ratatouille and as soon as I’ve seen the photo for this recipe I was struck immediately. I do believe I will try this recipe very soon before I will leave Italy.

    Thank you very much for everything and I am certain that I will visit again this website!
