This time of year zucchini is one of the easiest vegetables to find around here.  It is so prolific!  My husband and I like zucchini, but our kids  not so much. So I am always looking for ways to make it tastier for them, rather than just sauteing it. I’ve tried making Chocolate Cake with it, but while that tastes great it isn’t something I can serve as a vegetable with dinner.  So this week I added a little bit of bacon and cherry tomatoes to my zucchini for a different taste.

The result was delicious.  It is one of the few times I have made zucchini that there haven’t been any leftovers!  My kids said it was, “Better than usual” which as far as I am concerned is high praise.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 2 slices bacon

  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic

  1. Cook the bacon in a fry pan until crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan, drain the grease, and wipe it out with a paper towel so there is only a small amount of bacon grease left in the pan.
  2. Sautee the sliced zucchini for 10 minutes until it is nicely cooked. Sprinkle with a little salt if desired.
  3. While it is cooking halve the cherry tomatoes, mince the garlic and chop the bacon.
  4. When the zucchini is cooked add the tomatoes, garlic and bacon and cook for about 1 minute more.

  1. Yum. We eat a lot of zucchini lately and I just saute it in butter with lots of pepper. This looks even better. Because bacon makes everything better.

  2. I make something like this a lot this time of year. One exception is before serving top with your favorite shredded cheese and cover for a couple of minutes. I’ve used canned diced tomatoes when fresh weren’t available.
