These zucchini and onions are great as a compliment to grilled chicken and fish!

I mostly serve these cold, but if I do want them warm I put about 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter in a pan and give them a quick sauté.

They are equally good cut into 1/4s and toss with some fettuccine and fresh granted Parmesan cheese.

AND ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS AFTER HANDLING ANY HOT PEPPERS!
