  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion in the hot oil until almost tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning to onion; cook and stir until garlic is fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Stir zucchini, yellow squash, olives, and capers into onion mixture; top with cod fillets. Sprinkle tomatoes, remaining 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper onto cod fillets. Reduce heat, cover skillet, and cook until fish flakes easily with a fork and zucchini is tender, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over fish; cover skillet until cheese melts, about 2 minutes.

The only changes I made were due to lack of ingredients on hand. I used red, yellow and orange peppers in place of zucchini and yellow squash. Fantastic!

Slightly changed the recipe: no capers or black olives (just don't like either), and didn't use quite as much Italian seasoning (a couple of hearty shakes tossed in with zucchini and squash was...

Good, but I did change the tomatoes and used 1 can of fiery diced tomatoes. Instead of the 2fresh ones. It made more sauce to put over the ride, so the rice wasn't dry!
