We like zucchini, and/or yellow squash, simply fried in butter, to a golden brown, with a little salt and pepper. Delish. However, I thought I would kick it up a notch and this was the result. I hope you like it as much as we do!

How to Make JAZZED-UP ZUCCHINI

Step-by-Step

  1. Assemble and prep all ingredients.
  2. In a medium skillet (I would use nonstick or well-seasoned cast iron,) melt butter over medium heat.
  3. Add sliced zucchini; fry in butter, turning frequently, until very tender and browned (not burned) on all sides, about 10 to 12 minutes; remove from heat.
  4. Place in warm serving dish; immediately sprinkle with cheese; keep as warm as possible while preparing toppings.
  5. To the same skillet, add olive oil.
  6. Over medium/medium-high heat, saute shallots until translucent and beginning to brown (about 1 minute, watch carefully.)
  7. Scatter shallots over zucchini; keep warm.
  8. Add prosciutto to skillet; sauté for approximately 30 seconds, until prosciutto becomes crispy; remove from heat.
  9. Scatter crispy prosciutto over prepared zucchini; drizzle a few drops of good quality balsamic vinegar, if desired; garnish as desired. Serve immediately.
