Cut the green pepper and the onion into tiny cubes. Make sure the veggies are evenly cut. Also, cut the zucchini into medium size cubes.
In a big pan, add the olive oil and heat over low heat. Toss the onion, green bell pepper, and minced garlic. Stir and let it cook for 10 minutes.
Toss the zucchini and cook over low heat for 10 more minutes until the zucchini is tender.
Add the crushed tomatoes and season with salt and sugar. Stir and let it reduce for 10-15 minutes until you get a thick sauce (see the pictures for reference).
Serve with a fried egg and manchego cheese (optional). Or let it chill and save for later.
