Zucchini Surprise

If you have a ton of leftover vegetables in your garden, this is one way to use them!

Zucchini Surprise

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
6-7 assorted peppers {jalapenos, anaheims and banana}, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
6 cloves garlic, chopped
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 large zucchini, half slices
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • In a large pan over medium-high heat, saute the onions in the olive oil until translucent. Add in the peppers and garlic, cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Add in the tomatoes and cook into they look stewed, about 5-6 minutes. Turn down the heat to a simmer and add the zucchini. Cover and cook until the zucchini is done enough {personal preference}.
  • Add in the cayenne pepper for some extra heat.
  • Serve with cooked egg noodles or rice.



  1. I am a meat and potato guy and I think this dish is great! Dianne cooks it frequently in the summer and I always think it has meat in it. It's a really tasty way to eat healthier and a great way to use all that zucchini in the summer.
