This is one of my favorite dishes to make whenever I have some zucchini on hand. Some people tell me that it doesn't look so good, but once you try it, I think you'll like it. The mixture of vegetables, eggs, peppers and tomato sauce gives it color, besides some protein. You might like the taste better than the looks of it. Give it a shot, it won't kill yah!!

This was really good, but I made several changes. First off, I sauteed garlic and onion in olive oil, when that browned I added one small zucchini and one small summer squash, chopped. I didn't have a red pepper, but I did add a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce. This added a nice smoky flavor, along with a little heat. I used egg whites and salsa instead of the tomato sauce, I didn't have any... Then when it was all done I topped with a little shredded cheddar cheese. Ummm Ummm good!

I used mushrooms instead of onions/peppers and olive oil instead of vegetable. Used leftover spaghetti sauce flavored with meat. Sprinkled a little parmesan on top. REALLY good and fast!
