    Poker's Note:

    Found this in a magazine! Made it with the garlic excellent! Also instead of boiling the ribbons, I fried them in butter until tender. Wow! That was excellent also! Very easy either way.

      Wow! This was so easy and so yummy! I too skipped the boiling. I added about 1/4 of a red pepper, sliced thinly, and a small clove of garlic to the zucchini as it was sauteed in the butter. I also used freshly grated parmesean and good quality olive oil as I think it really makes a difference. The result was tasty and oh, so beautiful to look at. This is a perfect side-dish to add colour to your meal. I would suggest snipping the fresh basil right into the pan. I sliced mine a bit ahead and the edges had already started to turn colour which affects the presentation of an otherwise beautiful dish.

      A beautiful recipe. I make a variation to meet my tastes. I boil the water. Leave it to cool for 1 minute, pour over the zucchini. Stir once clockwise, once counterclockwise. Pour out the water and season. I eat it often with butter, pepper, salt. Zucchini is an excellent source of manganese. I can make this in less than 5 minutes. It is quick, healthy and cheap.

      This is a great zucchini recipe. I julienned the zucchini and steamed it, not at all limp or mushy. Meanwhile, I combined the other ingredients with the addition of garlic salt, which I tossed with the hot zucchini.
