Italian Zucchini and Tomato over rice

We like to get our fruits and veggies from Bountiful Baskets and that has caused the need for me to be creative in the usage of the veggies so they don’t spoil on us before we can eat them. I came up with this tasty vegetarian dish that goes very well with rice or on pasta. I even make up a small pan full for my lunch sometimes, it’s that good. 1T olive oil 1 yellow squash or zucchini, sliced 1 tomato, chopped 1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced or sliced (both ways are good) 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning salt and pepper to taste parmesan cheese (optional) Heat olive oil with garlic in frying pan over medium heat. That allows more of the garlic flavor to come out. When garlic is sizzling, add squash and tomatoes, and stir frequently until cooked to desired texture. (I prefer my squash and zucchini to have a little bit of firmness to them.) Serve and garnish with parmesan cheese, if desired. The above recipe serves 1 as a main dish, or 2 as a side dish.
