  • 1-2 tablespoons (15-30ml) olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons (28g) butter
  • 2-3 teaspoons (6-8g) garlic, minced
  • ½ onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon (1.5g) Italian Seasoning
  • 4 medium zucchini
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup (45g) parmesan cheese, shredded


  • Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. When hot, add the garlic and saute for about a minute or until fragrant; don't let it brown. Then add onions and Italian seasoning. Saute for another minute. 
  • After that, add the zucchini, salt, and pepper, and cook for about five minutes or until the zucchini slices are tender but still slightly crunchy.
  • Transfer the squash to a serving dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.


  • Cut the zucchini into uniform slices to ensure even cooking and an attractive side.
  • Don't thoroughly cook the veggies to keep all their nutrients intact, especially if you enjoy zucchini still a little crunchy rather than soggy.
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese tastes better than pre-shredded. But if that's what you have, don't sweat it. It's all good.
  • Please keep in mind that the nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary significantly based on the products used in the recipe.
