  • In a skillet, warm butter and saute garlic for one minute. Add zucchini and herbs, stir well to combine. Cook on medium heat for 15-20 minutes, until the squash is a spreadable consistency. Stir occasionally so as not to burn the vegetables. It is ready once the zucchini is of a jam-like consistency.
