|It is amazing how many ways you can|
prepare fresh zucchini.
To make zucchini this way, all you need is a few ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. This is my favorite way to eat zucchini; simply sauteed with some onions. This is how I make it:
3 zucchinis, halved lengthwise and then quartered
1 large yellow onion
3 cloves garlic
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Start off by heating a pan with oil on medium heat. Slice the onion and add it in along with the red pepper flakes. Mince and add the garlic 2-3 minutes later. Let it cook until the onions are just less than translucent. Mix in all of the zucchini. Add in the rest of the seasonings, in the amount of your preference. Cook until the zucchini is to your liking. Personally, my family likes it on the soft side, but many people prefer it to be more firm. I often serve this with chicken cutlets or steak.

I had to overcome a few obstacles, but I did finish and I am happy that I did not give up. Although it was very challenging I really enjoyed participating and am excited for next year!
