Zucchini Ingredients:

1 Medium Zucchini

1 tablespoon butter

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon seasonal

Instructions:

1. Slice the zucchini into disk that are about 1/4 inch thick.

2. Melt the butter into your skillet on medium heat.

3. Add the zucchini.

4. Once the zucchini starts to soften up, add the pepper and seasonal.

5. Stir the zucchini periodically until it is soft, but not soggy.

6. Serve with any meat of you choosing.

You can try these two recipes with many meats.  You can also use the same ingredients for the zucchini and grill them, instead of sauteing them.  This adds a different flavor and will need to be cooked for a shorter period of time.
