Sauted Zucchini Ribbons

Sauted zucchini ribbons

I’m pretty much the only one in my family who will eat zucchini. My kids don’t like it because it’s a green vegetable that is not broccoli or green beans. My husband doesn’t care for it too much because it can get mushy. However, peeling the zucchini into thin strips and then quickly sautéing them make them edible and enjoyable for everyone! It doesn’t take long and looks very impressive on a plate.
