Spicy Zucchini Stir Fry


I love zucchini.... but my teenagers are not quite so fond of it as I am.  I truly think something is wrong with them!  Since we always harvest an abundance of ZUCCHINI, I continue to try new spices and cooking styles.

If you enjoy a bit of heat, try this out with your next harvest.


2 medium zucchini
2 TBS olive oil
1 TBS butter or margarine
2 tsp garlic, minced
1 tsp basil, dried
1 tsp oregano, dried
3/4 tsp red pepper flakes


1)  Julienne or thinly slice zucchini.

2)  Combine olive oil and butter in a fry pan over medium-high heat.

3)  Add zucchini and garlic and stir fry for 2 minutes.  Stir in the remaining ingredients and cook until al dente.

4)  Enjoy!

Note:  This heats well the next day, too!
