Heirloom Tomato and Zucchini Sauce


Heirloom Tomato and Zucchini Sauce



Makes enough sauce for 1 lb of pasta

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 3 heirloom tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 zucchini, diced
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Fresh basil


In a medium-sized pan over medium heat, place the olive oil and onion. Sauté until the onion is soft and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute or so.

Add the chopped tomatoes and zucchini and cook for 15 minutes or until the tomatoes break down into a sauce consistency. Taste and season with sea salt and black pepper. Toss with your favorite pasta or gnocchi, or serve over some grilled chicken or oven-roasted fish. I served it here with some gnocchi and topped the dish with fresh basil leaves.
