Roast the zucchini
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve the zucchini crosswise; quarter lengthwise (or cut into 6 wedges if very large). On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Arrange in a single layer and roast, flipping halfway, 14 to 16 min., until browned and tender.

Mise en place
Core and thinly slice the sweet pepper. Peel, halve and thinly slice the onion. Mince the garlic. In a small bowl, heat 3 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) in the microwave, in 15 sec. increments, until melted. To the bowl of melted butter, add ½ the garlic; season with a pinch of the remaining spices and S&P.

Make the piperade
In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium. Add the sweet pepper, onion and remaining garlic; season with S&P. Sauté, 5 to 7 min., or until the vegetables have softened. Increase the heat to medium-high. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 min., until fragrant and dark red. Add the vinegar, ½ the remaining spices and ¼ cup water (double for 4 portions). Cook, stirring frequently, 30 to 45 sec., or until the liquid is absorbed; season with S&P. Set aside in a warm spot.
