Sauteed Zucchini With Oregano and Feta

"Found on the blog. Delicious and so easy. You can add some onions and mushrooms when sauteing the zucchini. Also you might try using yellow squash for the zucchini or mix them for a colorful presentation."

  1. Yummy! I love feta a zucchini and this hit the spot :)
  2. Wonderful recipe, of course you can't miss when there is feta cheese involved! I made as written with the exception of the parsley as I didn't have any on hand. This will be made again! Spring PAC 2014. Thanks mama smurf!
  3. Aussie Swap #85: Outstanding!! This dish highlights one of my favorite veggies perfectly and the savory feta cheese - YUM!! We loved this!
  4. This would have to be the best way of doing Zucchini's that I have every tried. And I love zucchini and we eat them often. I did slice them a bit smaller than 2" on a diagonal line. The flavours were outstanding. I used a hard, dryish feta which crumbled easily. There is nothing that would improve this recipe. It is perfection. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap December 2013.
  5. mama- Wonderful and so quick. I love the feta cheese as opposed to mozzarella or cheddar. So quick and simple and as the farmers markets and what is left of my garden flourish I had everything on hand. I shared this with a neighbor as we had an impromptu ladies dinner on the porch , potluck style, and all raved for your recipe. (I did pass it along) I will make this often for myself as a meal and for hubby as a side sans the feta as he is not normal and does not care for it.on his food , in ok but not on :-( He married a Greek for Gosh sake. Simple, delicious and flavors jump out at you. I was very careful with the salt as feta is very salty so used a tinge at first and adjusted as needed.Made for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap. update: 7/30/13 Made for the Annual Buffalo NY Garden Walk get together and it was gone so fast I did not get any. I doubled the recipe and it was a major hit. Zukes are coming out of our gardens like crazy now so perfect recipe for the gardeners.


<p><img src= alt=width=300 height=150 />I live in Boise, Idaho (home of the famous Idaho potatoes and Boise State University whose football team plays on the blue smurf turf). My husband and I are retired and travel quite a lot.&nbsp;&nbsp; We have a place in Boise, Idaho and now a part-time home in Carlsbad, California.&nbsp; It's nice to be in California where they have so much more fresh food...vegetables and fish!&nbsp;&nbsp;They have so many farmer markets that I really have to watch myself, but cooking is so much fun and they have such a variety of things to use.</p> <p>I have two daughters and one has three angels (the twins who are now 4) and my man who is 2 and just as big as the twins.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I do miss them when we are gone...they grow so fast.<br /><br />I love to collect and read cookbooks -- way to much from my husbands point of view. I love to watch Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, Barefoot Contessa and Everyday Italian. I have used this site for several months and have loved the recipes and info that comes with them...had to join! <a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><br /><br />The only peeve that I really have is going on this site and reading reviews on recipes where the person has totally changed the recipe and didn't like the results so therefore giving low ratings.&nbsp;<br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <object width=400 height=300 data= type=application/x-shockwave-flash> <param name=data value= /> <param name=src value= /> <param name=wmode value=transparent /> </object> img</a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=/ /><img border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=New /></a></p>
