Easy to make but very bland. Needs some onion and/or garlic to give it some taste.

Definitely a FIVE STAR! I used olive oil and added a clove of garlic (like one of the other raters). My husband usually doesn t like zucchini but loves this.

Adding nuts to a squash saute is a great idea. I like more flavor though so I added 1/4 c. red onion 1TBSP minced garlic 1 tsp Italian Seasonings 1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper and 3/4 tsp mild curry. I used my electric fry pan at 300 degrees.

I love this zucchini recipe I use Asiago cheese instead of Parmesan cheese to give it some extra punch plus I use a lot more than the recipe calls for.

Really loved this recipe! I did add just a sprinkle of salt but overall didn't find this to be bland at all. I messed up the directions just a bit and melted all the butter at once and then added the zucchini & pecans at the same time but it all turned out great!

Well if you like zucchini pecans and Parmesan cheese what s not to like about this? The sautéed zucchini is pretty straightforward but the addition of toasted pecans and Parmesan elevates this to another level. I added a clove of garlic toward the end of sautéing but otherwise followed the recipe. Watch your sautéing temperature so your butter doesn t burn and season this with salt and freshly ground pepper. A delicious way to enjoy zucchini!!
