1.Pre-heat the broiler.

2.In a large, cast iron skillet over medium heat, sauté the onion, garlic, green pepper and tomatoes until softened. Fold in the basil and remove to a bowl.

3.While the onion and pepper are cooking, in a bowl, combine the zucchini, eggs, flour, salt and pepper and stir well.

4.Drizzle a little EVOO (eyeball it) into the same skillet the onion and pepper were cooked in. Drop four equal mounds of the zucchini egg mixture onto the skillet and cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side.
