Cabbage and Zucchini Stir Fry!

Several people have asked for some recipes to use up some of their zucchini that is so plentiful right now.  This stir fry is really very easy to do and it is so delicious.  I used cabbage, zucchini, green and red pepper, and onion, but you could add some yellow squash, mushrooms or asparagus and they would be great also.

First, I just fried some bacon in a skillet until crisp.  I used 3 pieces but you can cook more if you want more protein or are making it this for more people.
Once the bacon is crisp remove to a plate and put the diced peppers and onion in the drippings left in the pan.  Saute for just  few minutes.
Slice a medium zucchini or two small zucchini into thin slices and add to the pan.  Toss with the other vegetables. Add a Tbs. of minced garlic or a tsp. of garlic powder.
Slice a half head of cabbage and add to the mix.  Sprinkle the vegetables with salt and pepper or something like Nature's Seasoning to taste. 
Toss over high heat just until the vegetables are crisp tender.  It won't take long...maybe 2-3 minutes.   Put 1 Tbs. soy sauce and 1 Tbs. sesame seeds overall.  Crumble the bacon and sprinkle over the top.
