  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 8 ounces mushrooms
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 8 ounces burrata
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  • Chop or slice garlic.  Slice zucchini lengthwise and chop into 1/4" half disks.  Slice mushrooms.  Chop Tomato.
  • In a large pan turn heat to medium with 1/4 cup olive oil.  Saute garlic for 1 minute, then add mushrooms.  Turn heat to medium-high and saute mushrooms until they release their water.  Continue to brown them for 2-3 minutes more after the water is evaporated.
  • Turn heat back to medium and add the zucchini.  Stir and if anything is sticking add a little bit more olive oil.  Cook zucchini for 5-7 minutes, then add the tomatoes and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the oregano, salt, pepper, and optional crushed red pepper.  Stir it all together and taste test.  If necessary adjust salt and pepper.  Total saute time will be 15-20 minutes.
  • Finally, add the burrata on top and serve in the pan or plate, then top with the burrata.  Add a nice drizzle of extra virgin olive on top of everything and serve with some more crushed red pepper and Italian bread on the side.  Enjoy!


  • Crushed pepper is optional.
  • Substitute a wet fresh mozzarella if unable to locate burrata.
  • Salt is kept moderate on all our recipes so adjust according to taste.
