    Stewed Zucchini (my way)

    Basil
    chopped Onion
    chopped garlic
    chopped Tomatoes
    sal and pepper to taste
    Sliced Zucchini
    Olive Oil

    Method:

    Saute onion and garlic in olive oil for about 1 minute (medium heat)
    Add tomatoes (cook for about 30 seconds)
    Add basil
    add zucchini
    add salt and pepper to taste
    Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the zucchini is done to your taste

    Epi - that's pretty much the way I like my zuks, but would/could you be tempted to add some butter to the oil for a little extra flavour?

    Need a list of amounts of each, but yeah, I pretty much eyeball it. I know how much I like :) It's a nice combination of flavours.

    Do you use dried basil? That's ok to put it in early if its dried, but if it's fresh you'll get the most out of the leaves (preferable in my opinion) if you toss them thru just before serving.

    Thanks for posting this, I haven't made it in a while. Zucchinis are in full swing here and now - yum!

    Nice recipe. If you can find 'em, try the Romanesco squash - similar to zucchini but more flaverful and able to withstand long cooking better.
