20-Minute Skillet Zucchini

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 3 small zucchini, diced
  • 1 medium yellow crookneck squash, diced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preparation Instructions

  1. Prep the pan—Heat olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium heat. When a drop of water sizzles on pan, it’s good to go.
  2. Start the zucchini—Add zucchini and squash to pan, distributing to create one even layer. Season with salt and pepper and let it sit sizzling in skillet for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Finish and serve—Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for another 5 to 7 minutes, until veggies are fork tender and beginning to brown. Add additional salt and pepper to taste and serve piping hot.
