Zucchini is prepared with a cream sauce. Corn, tomatoes and onion round out this exciting summertime dish that works well as both a side dish and a sauce for noodles.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/2 red onion, sliced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 pound zucchini, sliced
- 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
- 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in red onion, salt and pepper, and cook about 5 minutes, until onion is tender. Stir in zucchini, and cook 3 to 5 minutes. Mix in garlic and tomatoes. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a boil.
Stir corn and cream into the mixture. Reduce heat to low, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally until thick and bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes.
