Zucchini, Tomato and Mushroom Saute

~The Incomparable Saute in All its Glory!~

The other night my fiance called and said he was going over to a friend's house for a 'night with the boys' which meant that I'd be alone for dinner. I really don't mind actually, because it means I can experiment without wrinkled noses or funny (actually hilarious) comments about how healthy food will be my undoing. You see, when I looked into my fridge, I saw that I had some wonderful cherry tomatoes just picked from my gardens, and two lovely small zucchini (which he is not a fan of, lol) that just begged to be eaten right then! I would have just sauteed the zucchini lightly in some olive oil, but I was hungry. Really hungry. So I grabbed a bunch of other healthy ingredients and had a blast! I t was delicious, and you can bet I'll make it again - with or without the comments from my peanut gallery :)
This is gluten free, dairy free (use a cheese substitute), corn free, soy free, egg free, vegan and vegetarian.

Meghann's Zucchini, Tomato and Mushroom Saute

1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Cloves Garlic, Crushed and finely diced
2 small Zucchini, sliced in 1/4 inch slices
6 Cherry Tomatoes, sliced
2 Medium Stuffer Mushrooms, sliced thinly
Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste
Grated Cheese (or Substitute) for Garnish

Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, and add the garlic. Saute for 2 minutes and add the mushrooms and zucchini. Saute for another 5 minutes, or until the zucchini is starting to get soft. Add the cherry tomatoes and add some freshly ground black pepper, and sea salt, if desired, to taste. When zucchini is at desired tenderness, remove to a plate, top with grated cheese (or substitute) and enjoy!
