My mom has always made this delicious dish with zucchini from her garden. I added soy sauce to her recipe - it gives it really good flavor. This recipe is easily doubled, tripled, etc.


  1. Lightly brown the butter. Add onions and sautee until soft.
  2. Add Zucchini and a splash of soy sauce, salt and pepper. I also add a little seasoning such as Mrs. Dash. Mix well. Sprinkle generously with grated parmesan cheese.
  3. Reduce heat, cover pan and allow zucchini to steam-cook until soft but not too mushy.
  4. Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese again before serving.

We got our first zucchini out of our garden. I used two tablespoons of butter and didn't add any parmesan cheese. This recipe is so simple yet oh so good. Hubby said I could make this again tomorrow night. He and I loved it.

We started eating away at this before we added the soy and really loved it - so we didn't add the soy. This was so simple and easy! Thanks!

Even though I chose not to use parmesan cheese or butter to fry in, this still has great flavor with the soy. I used red onion also. Thanks for sharing this recipe and glad I tagged for Spring's PAC 08'
