  • 2 chili peppers
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 6 whole fresh tomatoes, peeled
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 2 pounds zucchini, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt

  • 1/2 cup fresh basil (or 1 teaspoon dried)

  • Garnishes: fresh parsley, fresh basil, freshly grated Parmesan cheese


In a large sauté pan, cook onion, peppers, and garlic in oil until softened. Add tomatoes and potatoes; cook 10 minutes. Add zucchini. (If you're using large zucchini, remove seeds and use only the dense flesh.) Add salt, herbs, and black pepper. Cover and simmer until zucchini is soft. Garnish with fresh herbs and cheese, to taste.
