    Chef #1289564's Note:

    We really enjoy this during zucchini season. My family named it when I first made and served it. It is easily done in one skillet and can be served as soup (with the juices) or main dish as it includes meat and veggies. When I lived in Texas, I included okra as one of the vegetables.

      I was looking for a recipe to use up all the zucchini, bell peppers, and tomatoes my parents gave me from their garden... and I definitely found a keeper! I served this over spiral pasta, and it was absolutely delicious!! I didn't have celery salt, so I substituted some Italian seasoning I had. I also added a 6 oz. can of tomato paste, because my super picky Italian husband likes a thicker sauce with his pasta... my super picky Italian husband loved how it turned out though, so I'll definitely be making this again!
