Zucchini and Tomato Sauté with Cotija Cheese and Cilantro

Zucchini and Tomato Sauté with Cotija Cheese and Cilantro

I was making a Southwestern flavored meal for dinner and wanted to pair it with a simple veggie side dish. I had a small onion, zucchini, grape tomatoes, garlic, cotija cheese, and cilantro in the refrigerator so I did a quick sauté and topped the veggies with the cheese and cilantro. It was a nice change of flavors that tasted nice together and it paired well with the rest of the meal.
