Pretty good recipe, with some adjustments. I used green instead of red pepper, and added a can of tomato sauce to the mixture for thickness. I also used crushed red pepper to give it some spice, and a beef boullion cube for some richness in the sauce. Overall, it was quick, easy, and very good for you, which is a plus. I would absolutely make this again.

what a great recipe! First the tweaks: only 1T olive oil, and skip the rice. Serve with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. 4 lunch sized servings and only 1 weight watchers points made this way! Really nice recipe, better than I expected it. I also like to use sweet (like Vidalia) onion, it complements the flavors better. You won't be disappointed!

I made this with couscous and yellow squash instead of rice and zuchini. Turned out delicious. Also spiced it up with white and cayenne pepper. Added some extra nutrition with spinach just in the final minutes of cooking. Great dish!
