I'm a last minute Annie sometimes and had to come up with a way to make some zukes I got from my garden. This was it! They were yummy with our grilled steak and salad!

I took some liberites with your recipe. I followed the ingredients but prepared it differently. I only enjoy zucchini just heated through, still very crisp. I couldn't find any nice small zucchini so used a medium sized one cut into 1/2" slices, cut in half. I sauteed the onions and garlic in butter until golden. Added the zucchini to the pan and stir fried them for about 4 minutes. Delicious and cooked just enough for my likeing. I'll be making this recipe again.

I used small zukes since I couldn't get the baby zukes this week. Very good flavor and quick to put together! We really enjoyed. Thanks for sharing!
