Wash the zucchini & cut into small pieces as well.
Next, heat up a large pan with a dash of oil, add the vegetables to the pan & fry for 4 – 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Then add 1 tablespoon of Italian herbs, a good pinch of salt & pepper and 1 can of chopped tomatoes, stir everything well, briefly bring to a boil & remove from the stove.
