We are starting to get a lot of zucchini in the garden this year.  Here is a quick and tasty use for some of our squashes!!

Directions:

Chop shallots and saute in the olive oil.  Shred the zucchini and green pepper.  Wring out the excess liquid with a clean kitchen towel.  Add the zucchini and pepper to the saute pan.  Cook to a “jam-like” consistency.   Add salt and pepper to taste.  Spread on toasted bread.
