This is a yummy dish that uses some of the harvest from your summer vegi garden. I added fresh basil and oregano, red and yellow peppers along with the zucchini. Also, crumbled and cooked italian sausage, added at the end, really pulls it all together.

Didn't enjoy this...needed something green for both flavor and texture.

This recipe is tasty, but it needs lots of help. It turns out very bland otherwise. Cook the veggies a bit longer to soften the red/green peppers. While cooking the veggies, add more salt, more cayenne, and some basil and oregano. Add a protein food to it. I added pieces of tuna from the can. When serving, grate fresh Parmesan cheese on top. Then (and only then), it's ready to eat!

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!! I make this all the time! I add a bit more cayanne pepper because we like it a little spicer and it's great. The things you can add to it are countless...try shrimp!

I wasn't super impressed with this at first, but after letting it sit in the fridge for a couple hours I loved it! Super Easy to make and a nice recipe to use on non-meat dinner nights!

Very fresh tasting. Add italian herbs with tomatoes for stronger flavor. Plus, add cooked sausage or other meet and for vegetarians add sauted mushrooms.
