Zucchini Yellow Squash and Basil

I hope everyone's gardens are as bountiful as Oregon's are right now, and I'm sure that the fresh ingredients from the garden helped to make this dish extra delightful!  While it is a VERY simple dish it is really nice and tame, with tasty flavors in perfect for hot summer days.  This was a side dish I created for a lovely steak and mushroom entree and yes it paired quite well.  So here it is!

Serves 4 (as a side dish)

The Ingredients
1 large yellow squash (or two little ones), sliced 
1 medium zucchini, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

The Process
 1.  In medium skillet heat olive oil over high heat (but not to the point that the oil will smoke), when hot add zucchini and yellow squash.

2.  Fry up zucchini and squash until golden brown, about five minutes.

3.  Then turn down heat to medium and add garlic, salt and pepper.  Cook for about 2 more minutes.

4.  Take skillet off heat and add in fresh basil, stir, and serve.

So simple and delicious.
