This dish is so versatile, it can be served as main dish, side dish, vegetarian, low carb, or add any kind of protein. Today I’m having Zuchini “Pasta” for lunch. It is very light and I love the aroma of the fresh basil.

In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the zucchini, mushrooms, tomatoes, cook stirring occasionally until vegetables are just tender, about 8 minutes. Add the basil and stir until the basil turns bright, about 1 minute.
