This chunky stew delightfully uses the abundant zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and green beans my garden produces. It is perfect for a summer dinner or a cool weather lunch. I serve it with buttered crusty bread. Use your largest dutch oven to make this recipe, as it makes a lot! Leftovers freeze well. Feel free to adjust the amount of crushed red pepper to suit your tastes. The amount listed will give a mild tongue tingle. I usually chop up and throw in the entire green pepper, unless I can use the other half within a couple of days.
