Love to make this when the basil and zucchini are fresh from the garden.

Made this dish this evening to go with tilapia for dinner. We thought it was FANTASTIC! Made it exactly as the recipe directed except in larger amounts. Very easy, flavorful, and fast which makes it a perfect side for fish. Will make this often due to its healthy content. Five stars for sure.
