Skillet Parmesan Zucchini Tomato and CornSummer break is already here in good ol’ Mississippi.  Where I grew up in #PureMichigan, school kids weren’t released for the summer until at least June, so this whole “school ends before Memorial Day” thing is still pretty odd to me.  Of course, summer weather is also here, so at least the temperature feels right.

We’ve been grilling and enjoying outdoor cooking, and avoiding the hot oven.  This Parmesan zucchini dish is perfect for using the stove-top while burgers are on the grill.  I also made this to set aside a Mexican spread.  It’s a pretty versatile serving.

  1. Throw the zucchini, corn and maybe the tomatoes on the grill instead of using the skillet. Then dice it up and add the cheese. It will really kick up the flavor.

      Great idea, TK! We have a small grill, so use the stove top often for sides while grilling meat. But, I’m thinking it might just be worth the few extra minutes just to throw it on after the meat is done! 😉

  2. This looks so amazing – perfect for summer!
    We’re out of school already too but the weather isn’t acting summery at all…rainy and cold. Boo!

  3. I love the vibrant colors in this dish. I’m always on the look out for new side dishes so I’ll be giving this one a go. (The cheese on top looks delish!)
