Ingredients

ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE!

2 Tbsp
butter, unsalted for sauteing
1 medium
sweet onion, sliced into strips
1 medium
green pepper, sliced into strips
1 1/2 tsp
minced garlic (packed in olive oil is what i used)
1 small
zucchini cut into small chuncks
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
several c
fresh spinach or equivalent bagged, frozen (not boxed)
1/4 c
good garlic/herb viniagrette dressing (i used the one from aldi with the garlic cloves in it)
drizzle
honey

Directions Step-By-Step

1
The objective of this is not to have a pile of indistinguishable mush on the plate, but gently cooked vegetables:
2
Saute in butter over medium to medium-high heat the onion and green pepper, add garlic, salt and pepper.
3
Add zucchini as the onion and green pepper start to soften, cover and let cook a few minutes, stirring occasionally until the zucchini begins to get tender.
4
Add the spinach, if using fresh, allow to wilt, covered. If using frozen, allow to thaw and heat through uncovered so there is not too much liquid.
5
When all is just cooked, add vinaigrette and, too cut the sharpness, just a drizzle of honey.
6
Cook a few more minutes, just to incorporate all flavors.
