Stewed Zucchini Peppers & Tomatoes

Stewed Zucchini Peppers & Tomatoes (Level 1)

3 Tablespoon olive oil
1 green pepper
1 medium onion chopped
1 medium zucchini (abt 6 oz)
5 cloves minced garlic
3/4 lb tomatoes
1 Tablespoon minced parsley
Freshly ground pepper

Cut green pepper into 3/4 inch squares. Cut zucchini into 1/2 inch slices, then cube.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan and saute the pepper, onion, zucchini and garlic until the onion is wilted. Add the tomato, parsley, salt and pepper and cook over medium heat, uncovered, for 30 minutes. At the end of the cooking time, turn up the heat to reduce the liquid - this should be thick, not soupy.

Serve hot or cold.
