I have decided to branch out of my comfort zone of cooking and create my own recipe. I was looking at some skillet recipes online but they seem to be bland or required items that I didn’t have. The recipe that I created was inspired by this zucchini skillet recipe. My family loved this, except one child who picked out the zucchini. It turned out better than I had imagined. I hope you enjoy my version of this recipe.

This recipe is great for a fall evening with the family. It is a light meal, yet filling. Make this recipe your own by adding different veggies of your choice or choose different nuts.
