Basil Zucchini

I was looking for a way to use up some zucchini and basil, when I came across this simple recipe for Basil Zucchini. This was a great way for us to incorporate more veggies into our diets. I love anything with fresh basil, and this dish is no exception. If I was a more creative cook, I might have come up with this on my own; but I'm more of a baker and still very much a beginner cook who needs recipes. So, for those who are still in the same boat as me, I hope you enjoy this 'recipe' too :)

Basil Zucchini
from Bon App├ętit

1 teaspoon olive oil
3 small zucchini, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 garlic clove, minced

Heat oil in heavy medium nonstick skillet. Add zucchini, 1 tablespoon basil and garlic and stir-fry until zucchini is just tender, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with remaining basil.

Yield: 2 servings.
