"If one consults enough herbals... every sickness known to humanity will be listed as being cured by sage."
- Varro Taylor, Ph.D., Pharmacologist
The choice of herbs here is not important. Use what you have in the garden or the fridge. Equal amounts of basil, chive, sage, rosemary and oregano will do but you could just as easily choose thyme, sage, marjoram and tarragon. This recipe will work with dried herbs but it just isnít quite as good somehow.
For most chefs and cooks the one ingredient that will distinguish a good dish from a great one is using fresh herbs. Certainly the best and least expensive way is to plant herbs for your own use but, of course, this limits availability. Most groceries have a fair choice of fresh herbs and specialty stores will carry even more.
The rule of thumb when you have no choice but to use dried herbs is: use one teaspoon of dried for each 3 teaspoons of fresh. In the off season when using dried herbs is impossible to avoid, it can help to mince about one teaspoon into a tablespoon of fresh curly parsley. This can simulate the freshness of some herbs.

|1 Tbsp||olive oil|
|1 lb||zucchini (1/2 inch dice)|
|2 Tbsp||fresh herbs of your choice|
|fresh ground black pepper|
Place the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot add the zucchini. Let the zucchini cook without stirring for about 3 minutes. If it appears to be cooking too fast, reduce the heat to medium.
Toss the zucchini well and cook for about 7 - 10 more minutes. As the cubes begin to brown add the herbs, salt and pepper and continue to toss.
Do not over cook the zucchini. As soon as the outside is lightly browned and it is slightly soft serve.
