Zucchini and Red Pepper Sautee

I love doing this for lunch.

It's faster than making an epic sandwich (because sandwiches need to be epic) and leaves me full.

Sometimes I have crackers or a nice piece of bread with it.

Zucchini and Red Pepper Sautee
Serves 1 person lunch.

1/2 medium zucchini, sliced
1/2 red pepper, sliced
1-2 tsp Olive oil
3 fresh basil leaves, torn
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1-2 tsp lemon juice
salt, pepper
1 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese

In a medium fry pan over medium, heat oil.  Sautee zucchini and peppers, sprinkled with a pinch of salt and pepper, for a few minutes, or until barely softened. Stir in basil, lemon zest and lemon juice.  Cook another minute.  Grate parmesan cheese over the vegetables and serve.
