  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and saute onion and garlic until tender and lightly browned. Mix in the zucchini. Continue to cook and stir until zucchini is tender. Season with cayenne pepper. Sprinkle with vinegar. Reduce heat to low, cover skillet, and continue cooking 2 to 3 minutes. Remove cover, and taste. If not at desired 'vinegar' flavor, add another splash, cover, and simmer for another minute.

i left out the cayenne pepper; seasoned with S&P; tossed with cooked pasta. it was a good side dish...not too strong flavors, easy to make.



This recipe was awesome! Both my husband and I really enjoyed it. I did end up adding another teaspoon of the vinegar and seasoning with salt at the end. YUM!!!!



Very good. I added some fresh mushrooms and seasoned the dish with fresh thyme. I didn't use strict measurements so probably ended up using a little more vinegar than the recipe stated.
