This was a delicious creation one night of what happened to be in the fridge. It was so good I made it again the next day and my husband came in and took a huge helping and loved it so much he then came and stole more right out of my bowl!

Nice topping for a tomato-less pizza (minus the peas)! For seasoning I used salt, pepper, thyme and sage. I also added the onion to the pan first with four cloves of garlic (sliced), then added the squash a little later. I'm not sure if that mattered.

This turned out way too mushy for me. Sorry.
