Italian Summer Squash

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Always in the kitch

A delicious way to use zucchini and yellow squash. You can adjust the seasonings to your own taste, and add salt and pepper, if desired. Be sure to use younger, 5 to 7 inch squash.

A meal in itself! Delicious. We had this last night along with some fresh lima beans and baked tomatoes. I made no changes to the ingredients and amounts, but did alter the prep slightly: I sliced the vegetables thinner (1/4") and did not cover the pan, allowing the juices to evaporate somewhat. I upped the heat a bit, which caramelized everything nicely. A true winner!
