Sauteed Zucchini

This zucchini side dish is easy and so delicious!  This is one of my favorite ways to serve zucchini. 
1 1/2 lbs. small zucchini, cut into 1/8 inch slices
2 TBS oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp dried minced onion
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs (not prepared dry breadcrumbs)
2 TBS melted butter
Freshly grated parmesan cheese
Fresh parsley
Rinse the zucchini and pat dry. Trim off the ends, but do not peel them. Cut into 1/8-inch slices.
Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet and when the oil is hot, add the zucchini. Do not overcrowd the pan or the zucchini will steam and get soggy.  Sauté the zucchini over high heat, toss gently.  Add salt, pepper and minced onion.  Cook a total of 5 minutes.
In a separate skillet, add butter and fresh breadcrumbs.  Saute' until crumbs are lightly brown.

Before serving, sprinkle the zucchini with breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.

Serves 4
