Yellow Squash and Red Pepper Saute

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kitchen Witch Steph

This is my favorite way to have yellow squash. I have to fight my husband for it because he loves it, too. I am estimating all the amounts. I usually just toss mine together with whatever amounts of squash and red pepper I have. I love the bright red and yellow colors dancing in the pan! Sometimes I sprinkle a little balsamic vinegar at the end and let it caramelize on the squash....not as beautiful a color but quite tasty.

I made this recipe for dinner last night as a side dish. I was looking for something different and this recipe was perfect. Added to my recipe box.
