Prepare & start the zucchini:
1 Prepare & start the zucchini:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Large dice the zucchini. Transfer to a large baking dish. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 9 to 11 minutes, or until slightly tender when pierced with a fork. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. 

2 Make the pepper rice:

Meanwhile, cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then thinly slice into rings. In a medium pot, combine the rice, sliced peppers, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water; stir to combine. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.
