  • Wash the zucchini and squash and blossoms gently in cold water and pat dry. If the squash is thicker than an inch around, slice them up the center, splitting the squash in two halves, but stopping just before you reach the end.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a non-stick saute pan over medium-high heat until the oil begins to shimmer.
  • Work in batches and gently add to the pan the squash and brown on one side about 2-3 minutes. Carefully turn the squash and brown on all sides another 2-3 minutes.
  • Continue cooking the next batch of squash and blossoms in this manner, adding more olive oil as needed.
  • Before removing the squash and blossoms from the pan, season with the dried Italian seasonings, salt and freshly ground pepper. Serve hot immediately.
