Clean and cut the courgettes into round slices. In a frying pan, sauté the garlic in the oil, then add the parsley and finally add the courgettes. Cook over high heat, stirring frequently. When cooked, arrange them on a serving plate and sprinkle with fresh parsley and salt. Serve hot.

If you do not want the garlic flavour to be too overpowering, take care to remove it from the pan before adding the courgettes.
With the same cooking method you can also make aubergines.
