A delightful & tasty side dish: Parmesan scented yellow tomatoes & green courgettes bake!

This is a lovely, tasty & easy side dish to make. I used here yellow tomatoes & green courgettes, for a lovely contrast. Parmesan cheese goes so well with these tasty vegetables. Enjoy!

Recipe: for 2 persons, with seconds!


5 yellow firm organic tomatoes, cleaned, tops removed, cut thinly into slices/ I got 5 to 6 thin slices out of 1 yellow tomato!

2 larger young green courgettes, cleaned, ends & tops removed, cut into finer rings/ I used home-grown

1 big red onion, peeled & cut finely

2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely cut up

a fruity EVOO ( Extra Virgin Olive Oil )

Black pepper

1 teaspoon of Maldon sea salt flakes

1/2 teaspoon of dried savoury ( Bonenkruid in Dutch! )

40 gr of freshly grated Parmesan cheese

To serve with: oven baked potato wedges & good fried vegetarian sausages 


1. Preheat your oven to 200°C ( 400 F ) for 10 minutes. In the meantime, fry your cut up onion & garlic in 2 tablespoons of that fruity EVOO on higher heat until browned & cooked through. Season with some grins of black pepper & some sea salt, but not too much!

2. Place these fried onion & garlic pieces in the base of your larger baking dish. Now, make 4 rows, besides each other with 1 courgettes round & then a yellow tomato round, etc. See pictures above. It is possible that you will end up with some courgettes left over. Use in another dish for later. See that everything is neatly tucked away. I had enough with 5 tomatoes, but if you need to use 6, do so to fill your baking dish up! Now, season with 1 teaspoon of Maldon sea salt flakes, crushed up with your fingers. I also added 8 to 10 grins of finely black pepper. Scatter, 1/2 teaspoon of dried savoury all over your dish, equally divided.  Also add about 3 tablespoons of that fruity oil all over the dish, equally divided. Add some drizzles oil extra, if needed. I added 2 finely drizzles extra!!

3. Bake for about 20 minutes into the hot oven. After 20 minutes or until cooked through, take the dish out of the oven & scatter the Parmesan cheese, all over the dish. Place back into the oven & let the dish bake for another 5 minutes or so until the cheese has melted on top! Serve at once with your other side dishes! Happy Eating! :)

  1. We both posted recipes on courgettes today but hands down yours is absolutely wonderful x

    • Sophie33 says:

      Yeah,…it is the end of the great Summer’s produce & soon these tasty veggies won’t be here anymore,… 😀😀 Great minds think alike! 😉

  2. This is such a great dish and oh so very French! I have never made it with yellow tomatoes but I must give it a try!

  3. A fantastic side dish, Sophie.

  4. bitsofnice says:

    Looks absolutely delicious Sophie!

  5. Tammy says:

    A beautiful dish Sophie! We are beyond squash here but I love the idea for the future.

  6. Liz says:

    Divine! Tomatoes from your garden?

  7. Ah, Sophie! This looks divine!

  8. Ina gawne says:

    This is lovely Sophie…a dish I make every summer! 🙂

  9. Ooh, love it! Looks delicious!!!

  10. Dear Sophie,
    GREAT! I have this all in my garden and, of course, I will try it 🙂

    • Sophie33 says:

      You have yellow tomatoes,…that is cool!

      • Yes, I tried them this year. I thought I go for tomatoes I didn`t know before like yellow and black ones. Well, those black tomatoes I don`t like but the yellow ones. Of course, I have the “normal” red tomatoe as well.

  11. With some vegan cheese, yum!! Celeste 🙂

  12. ritavegas says:

    I’m sure is really delicious!! I love the combination of zucchini,tomatoes and Parmesan!

  13. Kammie says:

    Ohh this sounds amazing and for some reason I can already smell it. I must be hungry, haha or maybe your photos are just that good. Amazing.

  14. I can never get enough zucchinis, and the yellow tomato pairing is both beautiful and brilliant. Really can’t go wrong with this dish, no matter what you serve with it. Knowing me though, I’d probably just eat the whole thing unadorned. 😉

  15. This looks fantastic!! I think I could eat this every night

  16. lefoodsnob says:

    Yummo! Both beautiful and delicious looking!!!!

  17. This one is amazing! I’m going to make this Sophie. I have both little yellow tomatoes and big yellow tomatoes in my garden ready for use! And a nice fat zucchini in the fridge. Thanks for sharing!

    • Sophie33 says:

      Tomatoes from the garden are always best, I agree here! Last year, I had yellow tomatoes but not this year, only a lot of red cherry tomatoes!

  18. This is a lovely side dish Sophie 🙂

  19. Sally says:

    Just received a huge amount of courgettes in my veg box so this couldn’t be better timing.

  20. Bernice says:

    Looks really good!

  21. Jacqueline says:

    That looks like a fabulous side dish Sophie. I’ll definitely be trying it

  22. Oh goodness, I am loving this! I’m thinking of ways to incorporate a full harvest in this bake!

  23. Poppy says:

    Those yellow tomatoes look stunning!!

  24. Liz says:

    A lovely side dish indeed. Those tomatoes look gorgeous. I would love to eat them. Thanks for sharing!

  25. I love how you’ve delicately and beautifully arranged the courgettes 🙂

  26. Koko says:

    This dish is PERFECT! I am picturing it on our table at Thanksgiving dinner. It’s so visually appealing, and those yellow tomatoes are stunning!

  27. Great recipe. I’m going to replace the parmisan with a miso faux cheese. What do you think?

  28. liveblissful says:

    I have never seen yellow tomatoes, they are gorgeous!

  29. Chandni Lahoti says:

    Wow Sophie! This looks delicious and I am so in love with those yellow tomatoes!

  30. Oh yum! These sound really great!

  31. So pretty– I want to make this soon Sophie!

  32. Liz says:

    I love those yellow tomatoes. They look so delicious. Where can I find some? what do they taste like? have a lovely weekend!

    • Sophie33 says:

      Yellow tomatoes do taste like normal red tomatoes maybe a bit sweeter? these yellow tomtoes contain less acidity then the normal red ones! I can find them at my local organic farmer marketbor at my local food Health shop.
