“Ok I know.eeeeeekkkkkk another zucchini recipe but really even my husband liked it and usually anything green at this time of summer he looks away from. This will be a go to for a dinner , lunch,or a side dish. I made a as a side dish because I wanted to see if I could get him to eat it and he did and even commented how good it was. This is a summer harvester's delight. Feel free to add or subtract veggies at your gardens whim. That is kind of how I made the recipe anyway.******** in the recipe it says cut into 1" cubes, you can chop how you see fit, I had to put something as it would not take chunky same with maters depending on size you can cut into 4, 6, or 8 pieces.”
