Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or butter) – about 2 Tablespoons
One huge zucchini, or several small ones (about 2 lbs) – peeled and grated
Large onion – grated
2 garlic cloves – minced
Herbs to taste – we used several stems of fresh thyme, or try Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
Balsamic vinegar to taste
1) Saute onion in butter until soft – then add garlic, salt, pepper and herbs.
2) If grated zucchini seems wet squeeze out extra water in a dish towel. Add to onion mixture and saute at a medium-high heat for 10 -15 minutes, stirring frequently. Adding additional oil or butter needed.
3) Taste and adjust seasonings, and finish with a drizzle of vinegar.
4) Serve hot over pasta, or scoop it up chilled with crusty bread. Freezes well!
