In a large non-stick sauté pan, place a tablespoon of olive oil and heat until smoking. Add the garlic, onion and green pepper and sauté until tender. Add the zucchini, tomato, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook and stir for 5 to 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender and liquid is nearly evaporated. Set aside and keep warm.
