This was a great little stir fry! I doubled the recipe and used romano cheese and Italian seasoning. I also used mature onions (rather than leeks or green onions) because that's what I had. I sauteed them with the garlic at the beginning, so that they would be cooked. Yummy, flavorful and colorful!

Very good. I doubled the recipe and substituted dill.

We also enjoyed this DELICIOUS vegetable dish. Used FRESH squash right out of the garden, they couldn't be any fresher as they were picked just before making this tasty dish. I did use 2 cloves of garlic and 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning as we love both of these. Other than that I made the recipe as stated. I added Parmesan cheese and tossed before serving. I will be making this recipe as it is so good and we both loved it. Thank you so much for posting.
