Colache (Mexican Zucchini Side Dish)

What you need: 

4 medium size zucchinis (finely diced)
2 cloves of garlic (cut in half)
1/3 cup of diced onion
chopped cilantro, salt, pepper, and olive oil to taste
1/4 cup boiling water
1/4 cup cheese substitute (if desired, any brand that melts will work)

What you do: 

Place olive oil and garlic over medium heat in a pan. Sautee until garlic cloves turn lightly brown. Add diced zucchini and onion, sautee until zucchini obtains a transparent appearance. Add water, chopped cilantro, salt and pepper to taste. Cover, reduce heat and cook for five minutes. If you wish to add a cheese additive do so at this time. This recipe is a great side dish.

Simple, but very yummy!  I didn't cook the zucchini for quite as long as the recipe suggested.  If I would have, I think the dish would have been too watery and mushy.
