Family really liked this. I accidentally left out the peppers. Had them all cut up but they never made it to the pot. I did add some small tomatoes that I halved as well as a can of diced tomatoes. Also quadrupled the amount of zucchini and the pasta noodles to make sure thee was leftover for everyone to take to work. Did not find it dry at all. Great meal for all the zucchini we will be getting soon.

It tasted good but it was too dry.

To cut calories and fats I used Olive oil to saute the vegetables and sprayed the casserole dish and it turned out dry. Would using vegetable oil and Crisco to grease the pan make a difference?
