Great way to use fresh from the garden zucchini. This dish can be served as a side dish or over brown rice for a nice light meatless dish. Adjustments were made to the original recipe which comes from The New American Diet cookbook.

  2. Add the zucchini, carrots, onion, celery, green and red pepper, garlic, basil and pepper; mix well.

  5. Add tomato wedges and cook uncovered for an additional 3 to 5 minutes or until heated.

What a fantastic vege dish!! I made with all the listed ingredients but cut them all into small cubes and ommited the cheese. I cooked the carrot, celery and onion until soft first then added the remaining ingredients until they were done, leaving a slight crunch. My youngest Daughter who going has recently decided that she wants to be a vegetarian had her's served over rice. The rest of the family had it as a side. Reviewed for ZWT3. Thanks for sharing!

What a great side dish! So simple and good. I chopped all of the ingredients and forgot to add the cheese so we added a little bit at the table. Thanks Paula for a great keeper. Made for ZWT8 - Family Picks.

Delicious veggie dish! I don't care for onions so left them out and used a little extra pepper instead; also added just a sprinkling of crushed red pepper flakes. Loved the mustard/salsa combo, really tasty. Served as a side this time but next time will double the sauce and serve over pasta. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
