Zucchini Side Dish - (Using up yellow squash and zucchini -use as a side dish or a main entree)

Reposting this one as I go through photos in my file folders.... This dish isn't one that really has a 'recipe' so much as a throw it all together type thing.

When you eat low carb for years there are certain items you automatically always seem to have on hand, and for us, it's yellow squash and zucchini.  The problem is that sometimes I buy them and then we go all week without having anything that uses them and I forget about them until I realize I have to use them up or they are going to go bad.  

I've spiralized them and froze them at this point, or spiralized them and served them along side whatever meal we had that evening as a 'noodle' side dish or I quickly use them in random recipes (many already posted on this site).  
***One of my favorite quick ways to use them up is to slice them into rounds about 1/2 inch thick, drizzle them with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and grill them!  YUM!*** 
Here is another quick 'use em' up' dish....
Sauteed Zucchini and Yellow Squash

Add some olive oil to your pan and then add the vegetables.  Saute' until they are tender.  Season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle with feta cheese before serving.
