Basil Olive Zucchini Pasta

Basil is one of those herbs that is so bold and flavorful that it can make a dish DELISH! It’s flavor is very strong and a little bit of fresh basil can go a long way! Obviously, I love it in Italian dishes. Flavorful dishes don’t have to be complicated. This dish can be thrown together in just a few minutes and tastes wonderful! Make it for lunch or a quick dinner! Makes 4 servings
