    Lainey6605's Note:

    This is a brightly colored, simply prepared summer squash recipe that can be prepared in a matter of minutes, so there is no prolonged sweating over a hot stove! It tastes delicious hot, warm or at room temperature, so you can make it ahead of time without sacrificing any of its quality. This recipe can be expanded into more of a light vegetarian main dish if served over brown rice or barley (or a combination), and topped with the optional pine nuts and cheese. I cut this out of a recent newspaper article.

      We really enjoyed this! Made as directed, without the pine nuts (forgot to buy them!) Loved the feta addition!

      I have to give this five stars for its lovely flavor :-) Lainey's right, it's lovely with rice- we served Brown Rice Pilaf. The pine nuts really make it special. But the problem is that, to cook all that squash in a single layer, you have to either own a HUGE frying pan, or do it in three batches! Still, thanks for posting!!
