  • 1 medium-sized zucchini, cut into 1/4 -inch slices (about 4 cups)

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This vegetable dish was very tasty. I substituted cream of mushroom soup for the barbeque sauce because I'm not a big lover of bottled sauce. Otherwise I followed the recipe as written. There was some left so we're having it again with chicken for dinner tonight. The first serving was with rosemary pork chops.

I left out the barbecue sauce and added a can of stewed tomatoes...very good!!

Has anyone substituted the barbecue sauce ?

Hi there! If you'd like to substitute the BBQ sauce, we recommend cream of mushroom soup!

can this be made without the wine,or is there a substitute that i can use.?It looks great.I havent made it yet,so i'm waiting for your response.

You can substitute beef broth for the Burgundy wine. If you only have chicken broth in the house, you can use that too. However, the beef broth will give it a richer flavor like the wine would. Enjoy!

We can't eat Bell peppers of any color, so I'll try this with cubanelle pepper or anaheim that always to sub green pepper, but I don't know what sub for red ones

RED peppers are just RIPENED GREEN PEPPERS!!
