Parmesan Zucchini

Summertime in this household means fresh veggies. My husband literally does a happy dance this time of year because he gets so excited about the fresh corn, tomatoes, and other fresh veggies that come to us via my cousin's garden. I must say, I do get excited about it too.  For a couple of years now, I've been making this zucchini with Parmesan dish. It's a simple side that can easily steal the spotlight from your entree.

Parmesan Zucchini

5-6 Medium Zucchini
Olive Oil
Kosher Salt
Black Pepper
3/4 C. grated Parmesan Cheese

Remove the ends of the zucchini and cut in half lengthwise. Slice the zucchini in 1/2-inch slices. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saute pan. Add half the zucchini*, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to the pan and cook, tossing occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes, until just cooked through. Sprinkle with Parmesan and cook for 30 seconds more. Remove to a serving platter and repeat with the rest of the zucchini. Serve immediately.

*You may have to cook the zucchini in two batches, as it will steam if it is too overcrowded in the pan.

I also sprinkle some extra Parmesan cheese over the finished zucchini right before I serve it.

Kevin replica watches uk Rose has been in the watch world spotlight lately because he recently released an iPhone and now Android app called Watchville. Kevin's primary work is at his company N-O-R-T-H, but admits that replica watches uk he used an outside developer to create the Watchville app, because it is more of a personal project for him. The idea of Watchville is replica watches simple; Kevin wanted a simple and efficient way to consume all of his favorite replica watches sale watch news in one place. Watchville presents a curated selection of the rolex replica sites that Kevin personally vets, and then allows the user to select which of those they want to view in their feeds while using Watchville.
