Not So Fried Zucchini

I think it tastes like fried zucchini- it’s technically sautéed in just a little olive oil though…

2 green zucchinis
½ onion chopped (green onion works too)
1 ½ Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Italian seasoning (basil, thyme, oregano)

Begin by sautéing the onions with the olive oil in a large sauce pan. Meanwhile, cut the zucchini so that you have round circles ¼ inch thick. Continue to stir the onions and sauté until browned. Add the zucchini and stir in salt and seasonings. Cover for just a minute or two then uncover and turn the zucchini so that each one is browned on each side. You will sauté the zucchini for a total of about 8 minutes so that it is soft but not limp or soggy.
