Great fast recipe. I made a few changes. Left out the squash. DH not a fan! Used a low cal dressing to lighten it up a bit and added a little fresh garlic. Thanks for sharing this fast and simple recipe!

This was very easy and quick. It was a good alternative to the bottled marinara sauce, and a great way to get more veggies into the diet. I really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing, Katie!
