This is a great way to use up fresh garden zucchini if you've eaten enough of it fresh and need to mix it up a bit. I found this recipe from Taste of Home 30 Minute Cookbook, and I love it because a delicious lunch or dinner is done quickly. I used a spicy Italian sausage (which I think gives way more flavor) beef bouillion and red onion, but feel free to vary according to your palate.

A few chops here and there as the meat browns and you're 15 minutes away from a delicious meal. I did add about 1 1/2 teaspoon of basil. I have more zucchini so I'll be making this again. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag 2010
