With in-season produce like zucchini, tomatoes, and bell peppers, all you need is a little seasoning to bring out their fresh flavors.


  • 1 pound (about 2 medium) zucchini

  • 2 yellow bell peppers

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 pint grape tomatoes

  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Quarter zucchini lengthwise; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick pieces. Remove ribs and seeds from peppers; cut into 3/4-inch squares.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing frequently, until vegetables are crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes.

Cook's Notes

This dish is quick to prepare, but you can reduce the time even more by cutting the vegetables a day ahead; refrigerate in an airtight container, and proceed when the rest of the meal is almost ready.
