Sauteed Zucchini

"This is a really easy recipe that tastes great. Fresh veggies in a light sautee. You can add a cup of cooked pasta if you wish to give it more heft as a side dish. We always make too much pasta during the week so this is a great way to work through some of the leftovers."

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the onion in the melted butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic; cook and stir 1 minute more.

Our family suggests substitutions to the ingredient list to eliminate trans fat. We used olive oil in place of butter. We regularly saute onion, green and red peppers and add a tomato sauce that contains very few other ingredients than tomato, or 100% tomato. This recipe helped us to adapt our recipe to add the zucchini at the very end of the cooking process. It's a great recipie, and to make it a little more heart healthy and a lot faster to prepare, try olive oil, pre-diced garlic, and a heart-healthy canned spaghetti sauce. Add mushrooms and peppers for added taste. If you are adventuresome and not concerned with a little trans fat and want to add a little saturated fat for taste, try adding from between 2 or 3 tablespoons to 1/2 lb. Italian Saugsage for seasoning.

I tried this reciped because my mom gave me zucchini from her garden along with some green peppers. I sauted red onion, then added garlic and diced green peppers with canned tomatos. I didn't have any chicken broth or buillion so I just added some poultry seasoning, sage, thyme, and sage. I also added some hot pepper flakes and pepper near the end. Served over whole-grain pasta. About 5 or 6 weight watchers points.


This recipie makes a delicious very flavorful side that my family gobbled up!
