2 c. chopped broccoli
2 cloves chopped garlic

In a large pot or Dutch oven, combine zucchini, peppers, broccoli, garlic, herbs, pepper and broth. Bring to boiling, then cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in tomatoes at the end. Salt to taste.
For a main dish, add to 2 c. cooked pasta (I prefer whole wheat), add 1-2 T. olive oil and 1/4 c. fresh shredded Parmesan cheese. Hot, for a main dish; cold for a great tasting pasta salad.
