This easy zucchini and tomato dish is super easy to fix and bake, and it makes a tasty everyday side dish. It's an excellent way to use fresh summer zucchini and tomatoes. If you have fresh basil, use that instead of dried basil. To tomatoes and zucchini are combined with herbs and baked with lots of melty cheese.

Feel free to use Mozzarella cheese in place of the fontina cheese in this tasty zucchini recipe. You could also use yellow summer squash in the dish or use a combination of zucchini and yellow squash for extra color.
