Grab a bit of everything from the garden for this one. Mix up your favs in any way you want—personalizing this dish is easy. Generally, though, a combination of peas, peppers, zucchini, onions, and tomatoes make up this particular combination.

Once you’ve got your veggies, all you need is some olive oil, herbs (from the garden of course), and some parmesan. Add some grilled chicken or shrimp for a dash of protein!
