Generally, I™m not a big fan of zucchini; however, this recipe, despite its simplicity, truly elevates an otherwise mundane vegetable. Serve this as a very flavourful side with roast beef.
Cut the courgettes on the diagonal into 1cm thick slices. Heat a little olive oil in a large sauté pan. Add the courgettes with the chopped rosemary and sauté for a couple of minutes, seasoning well and adding a dash of balsamic vinegar. Tip in the cherry tomatoes, adding a little more olive oil, seasoning and vinegar. Cook for about 1 minute until the courgettes and tomatoes have just begun to soften. Toss in the basil leaves, check the seasoning and serve immediately.
