3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons vinegar
3 tablespoons ketchup

Zucchini wrappers:

5 medium zucchini, not peeled

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion; sautÚ until translucent, about 10 minutes. Add garlic; sautÚ for three minutes.

Prepare the Zucchini Wrappers
Scrub zucchini; use a vegetable peeler to peel lengthwise strips down the sides of the zucchini.

Place one to two tablespoons filling at the end of a zucchini strip.

Carefully wrap the rest of the strip around it, keeping the filling inside. Then take another strip and wrap it around the other way.

Place packets into a greased 9- x 13-inch pan.
