Italian Zucchini

italian zucchini

This healthy vegetable side dish is the perfect complement to any meal. For more flavor and pizzazz, add and sauté a carton of fresh sliced mushrooms and some red bell pepper strips. Season with a little extra garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper to taste.

Make sure to use a great quality extra virgin olive oil. We love Colavita!
