Smitten Kitchen Quick Sauté of Zucchini with Toasted Almonds

Based on http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2007/08/my-favorite-side-dish/
Inspired by the Red Cat, NYC

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons thinly sliced almonds
1 to 2 small zucchini, cut into 1/8-inch matchsticks with a knife or julienne blade on a mandoline
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Few ounces pecorino Romano or paremsan, in thin slices — a peeler works great for this

Heat the oil on high in a large skillet. When it is hot but not smoking, add the almonds to the pan. Cook them, stirring constantly, until the almonds are golden-brown, approximately 30-60 seconds.

Add the zucchini to the pan, tossing it with the oil and almonds until it just begins to glisten, about one minute. The idea is not to cook the zucchini so much as warm it.

Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately, with or without cheese on top.
