Great recipe for when your vegetables are coming in from your garden! Beautiful colors in this. I've added a bit of onion from time to time, but my Mom is avoiding onions due to dietary concerns and so posted it like this. Adapted from a recipe in Grrr-eat Grub cookbook!

  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into julienne strips

We enjoyed this colorful dish. I reduced the oil to less than a tablespoon and served with Mikekey's Baked Turkey Croquettes. I will keep the recipe on hand to use again.

I made this exactly as written, except I used all red pepper (and no green). I had the zucchini and the pepper fresh from the farm, but sadly had to use frozen corn, as it is past season here. Even though this is relatively simple with few ingredients, it is really very flavorful. I had never thought of combining zucchini and corn before, but it's a winner. Made for breezermom's Football Pool Week 10 win!

Delicious ! I made the recipe as directed. It looked like a lot of food but the 2 of us ate most of it. Will make this again.
