  • generous pinch of red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the tomato halves to the pan, shaking to distribute everything. Cook until they are beginning to soften and break down a bit, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the halloumi cubes to the pan with the tomatoes, and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are just beginning to turn golden.

  4. Add the spiralized zucchini and cook, stirring constantly, until they are warm and just barely soft. A sort of "al dente" is what you're looking for - this should only take 2 minutes or so.

  5. Remove from the heat, slide the whole mess into a bowl, and sprinkle with red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

  6. Enjoy immediately!
