Roasted Zucchini With Tomatoes

zucchinitomatoes

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!
