Courgette Au Garlique

So, let's pretend that this is a proper French title for this side dish. I know you'll all cut me some slack when you realize that I haven't taken French since high school, too many decades ago for me to admit, and have never actually spoken the language. But, really, this is a way to help you all with your zucchini glut, and give you a different, fancy name to offer your family, so they'll be excited before they get to the table and realize it's the same old veggie.

Courgette Au Garlique

2 to 3 zucchini, sliced
2 medium tomatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
4 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
20 turns fresh ground pepper

2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced

Melt the butter in a sauce pan. Add the garlic, and saute a minute or 2, until soft. Add the rest of the ingredients, and cook until the zucchini is tender.

It makes an excellent side dish for a bland meal such as turk
ey and rice. And the vivid colors certainly help!
Bon Appetit!

Orange is not one of my favorite colors either. I'll be doing mine in purple which is not usually a color I'd wear, but I do like it. I'm really looking forwarding to participating in this challenge.

Looks and sounds like the perfect side dish to me.

MJ wants some. Maybe if she fixes it, she'll bring me leftovers?
