    Default Awesome zucchini and sliced almonds side dish

    Oh my goodness is this good. Fantastic with any main dish or as an appetizer.

    3 to 4 green zucchini - julienned thin and then cut into 1" long pieces (like matchsticks)

    1/4 cup olive oil

    3/4 cup sliced almonds

    8 large slices - Thinly sliced Fresh Pecorino Romano (or Reggiano Parmesan) - use a cheese plane so it's a slab of cheese. (Triangles look nice).

    Fresh pepper
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sautee almonds in a little oil, hot skillet - 30 seconds, remove from skillet

    Sautee zucchini in hot oil- one minute

    Toss zucchini and almonds together in skillet

    Plate the zucchini on a medium plate, add one turn of pepper on top.

    Place two cheese slices on top of hot zucchini and almonds.

    The cheese gets soft quickly from the zucchini steam. Serves 4.

    Oh my goodness.

    This sounds divine, Chalet. I can't wait to make it. I love good Parmesan.

    And thank you for adding the D to sliced. I wanted to but it was too late.

    I think I'm going to try it once with butter instead of olive oil.
