    shimmerchk's Note:

    I created this recipe at a time when i am growing a tad weary of salads and side salads and wanted a great vegetable side dish. I have always loved my Aunt Norma's stewed squash, and keeping her souther style- recipe in mind I created this yummy south beach friendly version.

      My aunt who is doing the South Beach Diet, and my mother were visiting so I cooked this along with my low carb lemon caper chicken. Delightful! This will be a staple at our house! Thank you so much.
