Zucchini con Peperoni

Zucchini should be cooked tender-crisp so that its texture contrasts with the roasted peppers. If red peppers are unavailable, you can substitute with pimientos. Enjoy this tasty Italian vegetable recipe!


1 – In a 12-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, turn heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, until soft but not brown, for about 4 minutes. Add the zucchini and cook, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes.

Stir in roasted peppers and continue to cook for an additional minute. Season with salt and pepper: remove from heat.

Transfer to a bowl and serve immediately.
