Zucchini Sauté

Another great, healthy, quick meal that I tried from this book – Everyday Healthy Meals (this link will provide the entire book for you!)  I loved Turkey Skillet too! I added a little sesame oil, and a T of shallots with the garlic.

Prep time: 10 minutes, Cook time: 5 minutes


1¼ pounds zucchini (about 3 medium zucchini)
½ teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


1. Cut zucchini in half crosswise, then cut each half into 4 lengthwise sticks. 2. Heat oil in a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
3. Add oregano and garlic, and sauté for about 2 minutes. 4. Add zucchini and lemon peel, and sauté for about 3 minutes until zucchini is lightly browned. 5. Mix in Parmesan cheese and pepper. Serve warm.

Does that sound easy or what?
