We loved this. I made a few minor changes: 1) substituted olive oil for the veg oil, 2) substituted a can of diced tomatoes, drained, and 3) added 1 clove of minced garlic with the onions. My husband and I ate it all during dinner tonight. A keeper!!!



easy, light, and flavorful summer side dish. Used EVOO and added some garlic minced. Sauteed the onion w/some sweet red peppers. Seeded the roma tomatoes to take away some of the bitterness and reduce water content. summer squash have a higher water content. Added just a touch of brown sugar to cut down on the tartness. Salt and pepper. Used fresh basil and fresh chopped parsley. pretty color combinations also. Served w/jasmin rice and nice complimentary side dish to baked tilapia.



I have to admit I am not a big zuccini or yellow squash fan but I wanted to use a few up so I tried this recipe. Well I have made it twice in two days! It is soooo good. I didn't have any fresh tomatoes so I used 2 cans of Rotel canned tomatoes with chili peppers - WOW. I also eliminated some of the oil because I am on weight watchers. Thanks for this recipe!!
