This recipe is one of my favorites when I’m looking for a quick fresh side dish.

1 1/2 cups chopped zucchini
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon fresh basil, minced
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

In a skillet, saute the zucchini, onion, garlic powder and basil in butter for about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato and cheese. Cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
