1 medium russet potato, peeled & sliced
3 medium zucchini, thinly sliced

1. Melt butter with oil in heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix in garlic and rosemary. Add broth and potato; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Add sliced zucchini; simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Working in batches, puree in blender. Season with salt and pepper.
