- Cut squash and zucchini into quarters lengthwise. Then cut into 1/4 inch slices.
- In a large saute pan heat olive oil over medium high heat. Saute shallot and garlic for 1-2 minutes just until translucent. Add zucchini and squash to the pan and stir to coat with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook for 2-3 minutes till vegetables are lightly golden and still crisp.
- Slowly add white wine and stir to remove any bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in butter and continue to cook until butter is melted and incorporated into the cooking liquids. Toss in tarragon. Turn heat to low.
