Zucchini, Onions, Tomatoes and Peppers with Basil

Zucchini, Onions, Tomatoes and Peppers with Basil

1 Tblsp Butter

1 Tblsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Can Diced Tomatoes, drained
1 Zucchini, sliced
½ Lrg Onion, diced

½ Green Bell Pepper, diced
6-8 Leaves of Fresh Basil, chopped*
Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste

Heat the Butter and Olive Oil in a skillet then add the Tomatoes, Zucchini, Onions, Bell Pepper, Sea Salt and Black Pepper.  Cook until just tender … I like mine still on the crunchy side.  Add Fresh Basil leaves during last couple minutes of cooking. 
*I had to use Dried Basil for the dish in these photos as I didn’t have any Fresh Basil on hand.  I’ve tried growing it year round by keeping a small plant on my kitchen counter BUT my kitty loves it just as much as I do.  Use 2 teaspoons of Dried Basil.  AND if using Dried Basil, add it at the same time as you do the other ingredients.
