Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 2 packages of cherry tomatoes (16 oz total) - set aside a few raw for garnish
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 zucchini (or any summer squash), thinly sliced lengthwise (I use my vegetable peeler) and cut into ¼ in strips
  • ⅓ cup torn fresh basil, plus leaves for garnish
  • Chili flakes (optional)
  1. In a bowl, combine tomatoes, garlic, basil, oil and salt and pepper. In a pan, sautee until tomatoes cook down and garlic is fragrant - 10 or so minutes.
  2. Toss with raw zucchini and garnish with basil, chili flakes and left over cherry tomatoes.
