SAUTEED ZUCCHINI WITH CILANTRO AND CREAM (for four)
2 tablespoons (¼ stick) butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-¾ pounds zucchini, trimmed and cut into 1/3 inch thick rounds
4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, divided
1/3 cup whipping cream
- Melt butter in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and saute 10 seconds. Add zucchini and 2 tablespoons cilantro; saute until zucchini is crisp-tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Add cream and simmer until liquid thickens enough to coat zucchini, about 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper, sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro and serve.
