Sauteed Zucchini

Cliff and I recently purchased a new house. I don’t remember if I have already talked about this. It has been so stressful; I cannot wait for it to be over. Working with the sellers has not been easy! We are scheduled to close on March 29th.  About one more week and then the renovations will begin! One of the first things I plan to do when we move in is start a vegetable garden. I have high hopes for this garden so we will see how it goes. Cliff is pretty good at keeping plants alive. I wish I could say the same for myself. I plan to plant herbs, tomatoes, strawberries, cucumbers, peppers, green beans, and of course zucchini.

Zucchini has to be one of the most under appreciated vegetables out there. Right after brussel sprouts! Not because people think that zucchini tastes bad, but I think it just gets overlooked. We really love zucchini though. We make rice with zucchini, zucchini cakes, panko crusted, grilled, roasted, and sautéed zucchini. Our very favorite preparation is this sautéed zucchini. We make it about 1-2 times per week during the summer. It is simple, yet delicious. It is also great leftover. I have tried many tasty zucchini recipes but this is the one we always keep coming back to. We just never get tired of it.

If you have any gardening tips let me know. I will need all the help I can get!

Here is what you'll need

Cut the zucchini and sprinkle with salt and pepper

Heat the butter and garlic

Place the zucchini in the pan cut side down

Once it is brown remove from pan

Place in baking dish and sprinkle with romano cheese

I can't wait to make this with my own home grown zucchini. Hopefully!
