Zucchini spears are lightly browned and then sprinkled with fresh oregano to heighten the flavor of mild summer squash.

½ cup diced onion
2 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise and cut crosswise into 2½ - to 3-inch pieces
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1/8 teaspoon salt
¾ ounce shredded or grated Parmesan cheese
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the onion for 2 minutes, or until beginning to soften, stirring frequently.
Stir in the zucchini. Cook for 6 minutes, or until tender-crisp, stirring frequently. Transfer to a serving platter.
