Step 1: In a 3 quart Dutch oven add the olive oil and onions. Saute on medium until tender about 8 minutes stirring frequently.
Step 2: Slice up bell peppers (removing seeds and core), add to mixture and saute an additional 8 minutes stirring frequently.
Step 3: Add garlic and saute for an additional 1 minute stirring frequently (Do not let garlic burn).
Step 4: Add basil, oregano and parsley mixing with other ingredients.
Step 5: Add crushed tomatoes, zucchini, squash, red pepper flakes, salt and mix together and stir.
Step 6: Reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook for 1 hour or so on low/simmer, stirring every 5 minutes until zucchini and squash are tender. (I set my timer).
Step 7: Place parmesan cheese on table to be sprinkled on top of each individual serving. (I don't use it but my DH does).
