This recipe lends itself well to ingredient adjustments. So feel free to adjust ingredients to make use of fresh produce or vegetables and herbs that are more suited to your taste buds.

It's a good vegetarian dish that is equally great served hot or cold, and it's goes well with a chilled salad or hot side dishes like cooked rice or roasted potatoes.

If stored in an airtight glass container, this should keep in refrigerator for up to 5 days.

  2. Heat oil in same skillet, and add the zucchini, corn, bell pepper and onion, and cook 6 to 7 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Add garlic, oregano, basil, pepper and red pepper flakes (if using) to pan, and stir while cooking for another minute or two.
