This easy recipe incorporates healthy vegetables that can be easily grown in the Chicagoland area, including bell peppers, tomatoes and zucchini. It can be modified to include more favorites as a personal preference and seasonal availability, such as pineapple, Vidalia onions, eggplant or even peaches.
