Martha Stewart's Sautéed Zucchini and Corn

My Mom gave me this Martha Stewart cooking school book for my birthday last year and it has been packed up in our Pod for almost a year.  Needless to say, I hadn't cooked anything from it until about a month ago.  My adorable cousin has this same cookbook and when she came to stay with me for a week last month, she showed me all her favorite recipes.  This happen to be one of them.  It is so delicious and she made an excellent addition to it too.  The fresh basil absolutely makes it so don't even think about trying to use dried basil.
