This is a quick, healthy, and delicious side dish that goes well with almost any main entree. It’s also a great way to use up the vegetables in your refrigerator. I served this dish with the barbecue beef sandwiches and it was delicious. I really loved the flavor the fresh basil gave to these vegetables.
