2zucchinissliced into matchsticks
1tbspextra virgin olive oil
Slice your zucchini into matchsticks. This can be done easily with a mandolin slicer. If one is not available to you, matchsticks can also be made using a knife.
In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, and moves easily in the pan, add the sliced zucchini. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove the zucchini from the pan once it begins to brown, has a slight crunch, but is not mushy. This will take about two minutes. Serve as a side dish tossed with your preferred pasta sauce, or as a bed for a filet of the protein of your choice (fish, chicken, tofu, etc.).
