Very simple and very good! I have made this many times in the past when I have lots of zucchini overflowing in my garden. Even better if you can use fresh cut corn from the cob. This is a simple recipe that has lots of wonderful flavor! you will love this! Use less jalapeno but please use some, it really brings out a "kick" in this recipe. My family loves spicy, so I use the two jalapenos!

This was FABULOUS! I used 3 zucchini, 1 onion, 5 cloves of garlic, 1 red bell pepper and 2 jalapeno's. I also omitted the corn and diced up 10 Roma tomatoes and added them with the peppers. Topped this off with romano cheese and LOVED it! Would even add more than 2 jalapeno's next time! Another winner Kittencal!

Delicious side-dish Kit! Loved loved loved it!! Made as is but used canned corn (that was all that I had...). It has a nice kick and is healthy!! Used parmesan cheese at the end - Mmmmm! Had some leftovers the next day and it was still as delicious!! thanks Kit!
