1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup chopped celery
6 medium zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
2 large ripe tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

1 tablespoon GAMMS Original
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside. Pour off all but one tablespoon of bacon fat from the skillet.
Stir in the onion, green and red bell peppers, and celery to the skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the zucchini and mushrooms and cook 1 more minute. Stir in the tomatoes, artichoke hearts, pineapple and crumbled bacon.
Pour in the reserved pineapple juice and the GAMMS Original. Season with the salt and pepper, basil, garlic power and Italian seasoning. Cover and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Do not over cook.
Sprinkle the Cheddar cheese on top of the vegetables and cook 2 more minutes, or until the cheese melts. Serve zucchini in the skillet topped with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
