Fantastic and attractive side dish! My husband, Mr. No Veg, commented how much he liked it and this never happens. I made exactly as directed and wouldn't change a thing. Could also be served over brown rice as a vegetarian main dish. Toasting the cumin seeds releases lots of flavor and the medley of corn, onion and squash is simply wonderful. Lots of great taste without a lot of fat. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I love squash and zucchini and am always looking for different ways to prepare it. I really enjoyed the addition of corn and spices, however; I did leave out the chiles. I also skipped the cheese. I will keep this one.
