Zucchini Bake

This is a great summertime dish when zucchini is abundant. We love it around our house!

1 T. olive oil
1 whole zucchini, chopped into bite size pieces (do not peel)
1 small onion, diced
1 clove of garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup pasta sauce
Shredded Cheese

In a stove-top pan, warm the olive oil on med. heat. Add the zucchini, onion, garlic (pressed with a garlic press) and sea salt. Cook until zucchini is tender, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add pasta sauce. Mix well and immediately top with cheese. Serve!

*Optional - Mix in 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese and 1/2 cup ricotta cheese to add a protein boost.
