Fresh Tomato & Zucchini Pasta Sauce

Ingredients:
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large zucchini, diced
4 cups diced roma tomatoes
1/2 cup minced prosciutto
1/2 cup minced fresh Italian parsley
salt
freshly ground black pepper
olive oil

Directions:
Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add the onion and garlic. Saute until fragrant. Add the zucchini and saute until softened. Add the tomatoes and cook through. Add the salt, pepper, parsley and prosciutto. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Serve over pasta.

My thoughts:
I am amazed and a little sad that we are already a week into September! While tomatoes, zucchini, berries and peaches are still in great supply, soon we will be solidly into winter squash, pear and apple territory and while I love them as well, they never fail to remind me that winter is just around the corner bringing with it no local fresh fruits or vegetables at all. So to cheer myself up and make the most of the truly lovely tomatoes I was finally able to procure, we made this simple sauce. It really is delicious and so fresh tasting. Just take care to use the very best and ripest vegetables you can find.
