Easy! Candy loved it, Tom liked it (hey, it's a vegetable, for him, that's a compliment) but my kids wouldn't touch it. Oh well, it was good in my opinion, something different to do with squash!

I made this last night to round out my leftovers dinner. This was fast and easy to throw together and very tasty. This is what summer tastes like! I served it with some sliced tomatoes. YUM. Thanks for sharing. :)
