  5. 2 medium zucchini (1 pound), cut into 1/4-inch rounds
  6. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter in the olive oil. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook over moderately high heat until the garlic begins to turn golden, about 2 minutes.

Toss the zucchini with pecorino shavings and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl and serve.
