"I invented this recipe on vacation when the produce stands were overflowing with young, tender zucchini and yellow squash. The secret is the sun-dried tomatoes. Enjoy!"

I'll give this four stars, but that is including my modifications... added some minced garlic and dash of hot pepper sauce to the finished product. I made a big pot and used the last of this dish in a quick pasta primavera.

Made this recipe last night exactly as written except I used smoked Sun Dried Tomatoes, it is simple and delicious. I didnt know they had smoked Sun Dried Tom until I went to purchase them. It was a nice addition especially for a side to Garlic Salmon.

I squeezed in a lemon instead of using butter to cut down on calories. Good!
