For sautéed baby zucchini:

Use 2-3 baby zucchini per person

Slice in half lengthwise. In a preheated sauté pan, add several tablespoon of olive oil. Once oil is shimmering, place zucchini in the pan cut side down. Sauté until nice color forms on the cut side. Turn over, sprinkle cut side with salt and cracked pepper. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate for absorption of excess oil.
