Chef-Boy-I-Be-Illinois' Mediterranean Peas and Squash

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 20 mins

The inspiration for this came from a local Greek restaurant that had the most marvelous green beans in tomato sauce, and the fact that I had some peas and ever abundant squash to use. The sugar takes the edge off the tomato sauce and the cinnamon provides a nice contrast. This makes a very nice side dish. I hope you like it!
