Zucchini with Tomatoes
1 pound zucchini
Wash the zucchini, trim ends: cut them in half lengthwise, then into rough pieces of about 3/4 inch. Cut the tomatoes in half and squeeze out some of the seeds and juice. Peel the garlic and cut into slivers. Chop the basil.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet. Add the zucchini and garlic, and stir to combine. When the zucchini begins to brown*, add the tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Stir well, then cook for 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and add the basil. Drizzle with remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil and cover. Let sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.
COOKS NOTE: If you like to sautee at high temperatures, add the garlic to the end of the zucchini cooking time so it will not burn.
