Zucchini Sandwiches My Dads

My Dad was a great Italian cook, he came up with these sandwiches from an overload of zucchini and green peppers in his garden.
Well every year all of his 5 married children and their husbands and children would take a vacation to a Lake in New Hampshire and rent a huge cottage to stay in on the lake.
Well my Dad made a huge batch of these sandwiches and brought them to all of us to have something on the ride up. Would he ever tell us how he made them? No. Finally in his later years he showed me how to make em. They are my favorite now when my garden is full of zucchini & peppers.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1-2
zucchinis ( depends on how many your feeding and how big the zucchinis are)
1
green pepper
1
onion
olive oil
1 c
or more to your liking of cheese, either sharp, or a mixture of different cheeses
1 jar(s)
or use your own pasta sauce to cover the amount of your zucchini
parmesan cheese

NOTE: I SOMETIMES CHOP UP BACON AND FRY IT OUT WITH THE PEPPERS AND ONIONS, ADDS A NICE FLAVOR.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pour olive oil in a large cast iron frypan, or any large heavy pan you have.
Cut up your onions and peppers and start to simmer.
2
Now start cutting up your zucchini in coin shape and slowly add to the peppers and onions.
You can add some Italian spice at this point if you like.
3
After they are nice and brown use your own tomato sauce or I have even used fresh tomatoes sliced or jarred sauce, and place over the zucchini in pan.
Let this simmer for awhile, I also add a pat or two of butter in the sauce to help cut any acid, then add your cheese on top (don't scrimp). You can use whatever your favorite cheese is, just let it melt on top. Fill Italian bread slice or buns or pockets and munge !
