In a saucepan over medium heat, saute garlic and onion in oil for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and herbs, continue to cook for 5 minutes until the tomatoes soften. Season with salt, pepper and sugar. Meanwhile bring a pot of salted water to boil and add zucchini, cook until soft. Put sauce in food processor and pulse do not over blend. You want a few chunks.
