Zucchini Mushroom Stir Fry

I love stir fry vegetables. This recipe is very simple and easy to make and reminds me of a cool summer evening when the Zucchini has been freshly picked out of the garden, cleaned and sliced. I make this often because it is fast, simple, easy, and delicious. Sometimes I just eat a bowl of it without any pasta or rice and it is very filling for me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
