Really quick and tasty ! Used almost the last zuke, and a BIG ripe tomato - made the combo VERY juicy. Added a plum tomato, chopped, for the last minute of cooking, and stirred in chiffonaded basil leaves, some Italian seasoning, and a big spoonful of feta when served. We ate the WHOLE thing !! Thanks, Kymmarie, for another presentation of bountifful garden veggies.
