(Kabak Musakka)

Zucchini Moussaka
2 medium-sized zucchinis, washed, slice in round shape
1 cubanelle pepper, discard the seed, cut in medium size
150g medium ground beef

1-2 garlic cloves, sliced
1 large onion, sliced
2 tbsp crushed tomatoes, canned
1/3 cup warm water

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp crushed pepper
1 tbsp dill, chopped

Cook the ground beef with olive oil, onion, salt and pepper until the colour of ground beef turns to light brown. Don't over cook! Place zucchini slices in a shallow pan. Spread ground beef mixture all over them along with the cubanelle peppers and garlic. Mix crushed tomato with hot water, pour into the pan. Cook for about 15 minutes at medium heat.

Turn the heat off. Drizzle some olive oil and sprinkle crushed red pepper, chopped dill all over it.

It is a Turkish pide (pita). I've already posted the recipe which is under the Bread&Pide section:)

What is a cubanelle pepper, please? I assume it's not a green pepper. What could I substitute for it? Thank you for your wonderful recipes!

Hi Becky,
Cubanelle peppers are similar to banana peppers so you can use banana peppers:)
