      Needed to use up some zucchini and beef before going on vacation. Found this recipe. I was worried about the basil, but it is a great addition. Even with my sloppy cooking style, the recipe turned out better than edible. In fact, I can't think how a dish where the main ingredients are zucchini and beef could be better. That said, I'm not a huge fan of zucchini as the staring role in a meal, so I wouldn't go out of my way to make this, but I would make it again if I'm ever in a similar pickle.
