This was a "what I had on hand" recipe that I just threw together from things I had banging around from the garden plus those extra few pantry staples. Wonderful on it's own or tossed with orzo pasta....a finish of extra virgin olive oil, fresh picked mint, and a sprinkle of feta! —olive

  • 3 tiny just picked zucchini
  • 8 shishito peppers
  • 1 can Borlotti beans (cranberry)
  • 3 cloves garlic

  1. Saute over medium high heat chopped Shishito peppers until going a bit limp and nicely seared

when do you add the beans?

Hi Susan----I add the beans at the very end just to warm them….!

My kids devoured this dish. Very good with simple and distinguishable flavors. I made it sans pasta and summer squash. Added the fresh mint and basil and two bell peppers and the stripped corn from two cobs. The shishito peppers were hardly noticeable and I will use a whole pint next time and perhaps blister them seperately then add them at the end of cooking.
