zucchini medley

My husband was recently diagnosed with health problems and told he had to begin a low carb diet. Coming up with recipes I could get my  “meat and potatoes” family to eat has been a challenge.  I created Cajun Zucchini Medley with a few zucchini I had been gifted and found a dish everyone enjoyed.  I’ve used squash in place of the zucchini or combined the two together.  The seasoning gives the dish a hint of spice and can be adjusted for taste.  Be sure to mix the spices so they are evenly distributed before cooking or there will be parts of the dish that have clumps of seasoning and other parts with none.  Italian Seasoning can be substituted to create a totally different taste sensation.  I use yellow bell peppers to add color but use whatever you have on hand.  For a more pronounced onion taste, use red onion instead of  the  milder  white version.
