My grandmother used to make this as I was growing up. I never liked squash but have grown to love this dish. I have tweaked it over the years as my grandmother never seasons anything.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut bacon into approximately 1-inch size pieces and fry until crisp. Add chopped onion and sauté for a few minutes to lightly brown.
  2. Add sliced zucchini, minced garlic, salt, pepper and stir.
  3. Cover and lower heat. Simmer on low heat, stirring occasionally until squash gets soft.
  4. Add quartered tomatoes and simmer for 5-10 minutes more.

This is wonderful. I often serve this over rice or mix in with spaghetti noodles and top with a generous amt of parmasen cheese. I think it needs a lot of garlic, so put more in than you think you need. The squash are so bland, they need it. Enjoy!
