As summer comes to an end, so does squash and zucchini season. By the end of the season, I have grown tired of the same old roasted or stewed squash and zucchini recipes.

This past week, I jazzed up zucchini by sautéing zucchini, onions, and cherry tomatoes in a honey, balsamic sauce. The outcome was delicious and just what I was looking for.

Topping the recipe with goat cheese provides an extra punch of tangy flavor.

This recipe is the perfect way to utilize summer vegetables that are about to go bad.

The honey balsamic sauce provides a sweet and savory flavor the whole family will love.

It is the perfect side dish for chicken, steak or fish.
