A nice easy side dish to prepare, goes great with just about anything. I have even had this for a main dish, with a nice crispy salad.

Very tasty little dish sashaying around the plate! I used bacon grease rendered earlier (and frozen), so didn't have the FULL flavor I'd expect if I'd've had bacon in the dish. And I didn't have tomatoes--I know DH would've loved it even more if I had used them. I used two larger squashes: one green zucchini and one yellow crookneck--very pretty! Nice side-dish, and with meat I can see how this could be a main dish. Reminds me of Eggplant Parmigiana! *ZWT4 - Italy*
