8 medium courgettes
Good olive oil
2 large yellow onions cut in half and sliced 1/2 inch thick
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
100g freshly grated parmesan cheese
1) Remove the ends of the courgettes and, if they are large, cut in half lengthwise. Slice the courgettes diagonally in 1 1/4 cm slices. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saute pan and add the onions. Cook for 10 minutes on medium-low heat, until they start to brown. Add half the courgettes, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to the pan and cook, tossing occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes, until just cooked through. Sprinkle with parmesan and cook for 30 seconds more. Remove to a serving platter and repeat with the rest of the courgettes. Serve immediately.

Note: If you cook too much courgette in one pan, you end up steaming rather than sauteing it. I prefer to cook it in 2 batches.
