A Stir Fry Vegetable Recipe – Sauted Zucchini Parmesan with Olives

When I was growing up, squash was a mushy stewed dish with very small flavor. As a result, I never liked squash and missed out on some very excellent dishes I’m sure. My husband reintroduced me to squash of the stir fried variety. When stir fried only until just tender, the squash retains flavor, nutrition, and texture. Now, squash is one of our favorite vegetable dishes. This is an brilliant recipe for Sauted Zucchini Parmesan with Olives. It is quick to prepare, healthy and elegant in presentation.

We frequently saute either zucchini, summer squash, or a mixture of the two with whatever herbs we have in the garden, or with garlic and onions. As the squash comes off the heat we add the parmesan cheese, or sometimes other cheeses.

The olive topping is an elegant and tasty addition. It adds a contrast of flavors, textures, and colors that turns a excellent dish into a magnificent dish. This dish is simple and quick enough to be served on a weeknight and elegant enough for a company meal. I hope you will try it soon.
