Easy Cheezy Stovetop Zucchini Recipe

Easy Cheezy Stovetop Zucchini Recipe
I seems that at the end of summer almost everyone is trying to find ways to cook the last of the zucchini. The following recipe, adapted from one found on Pinterest, is one of those “Why didn’t I know about this before?” recipes. Easy Cheezy Stovetop Zucchini is very quick, and hands on prep is only a few minutes to chop the onions and shred the zucchini. Cheese, of course comes already shredded, so hopefully there is some already in the fridge. There are minimal ingredients in this luscious dish, so plan to have it finished in about 20 minutes.
While this vegetable dish cooks quickly, It’s especially good when the cheese is heated and goes a little crispy on the bottom; it can be stirred so that everything gets crispy, if you like crispy cheese. Otherwise, this dish is great just creamy and gooey. In fact, you may find that even those who hate zucchini or are really tired of it will eat seconds and ask for more.

4 Servings

1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 pound finely grated zucchini
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  3. Stir in the zucchini; let cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 5-10 minutes.

  5. Serve immediately.
