• zucchini
  • olive oil
  • italian seasoning
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Rinse enough vegetables for however many people you are serving, 1 medium zucchini for every two people.
  2. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise and then chop into half inch sections.
  3. Film enough olive oil in a large sauté pan to just barely film the bottom. No more than a few tablespoons, depending on how much zucchini you have.
  4. Set the pan over a strong medium to medium high heat. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and a generous amount of italian seasoning.  Again, judge this on preference and the amount you are cooking.
  5. Leave the veggies where they are for several minutes to acquire some color on them.  If they are just kind of steaming, turn up the heat a bit.  Give them a toss, and then leave them alone again to get more color on a different side.
  6. Pull them from the heat when they are fairly well browned but have not become mushy.
  7. Taste for salt and pepper and serve immediately.
