Zucchini in dill and artichoke sauce

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 large Spanish onion, chopped

1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded and chopped

2 teaspoons paprika

1 (28-ounce) and 1 (14-ounce) can chopped tomatoes, drained

1 (10-ounce) can quartered artichokes, drained

2 pounds medium zucchini, sliced 1/2-inch thick

1/4 cup chopped fresh dill

Salt and fresh-ground black pepper, to taste

Makes 8 servings.

Heat oil over medium-high heat in a nonreactive large saucepan. Add the onions, bell peppers and paprika. Saute 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and artichoke hearts and simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes until sauce thickens slightly.

Add zucchini and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes until zucchini softens. Add dill and season with salt and pepper.

I've been told that eggs are traditionally baked on top of this and it is served as an entree.
