easy squash


Prep Time 5 minutes Total Time 15 minutes

Serves 6


2 lbs squash and/or zucchini, sliced

1 green bell pepper, seeds removed, sliced

2 smallish tomatoes or one large tomato, cut into wedges

1/2 yellow onion, peeled and sliced

1 clove of garlic, chopped

Olive oil

1 cup grated cheese - jack or cheddar

Basil, either dry or chopped fresh

Salt and pepper


Put onion, garlic, squash, bell pepper into a large saucepan with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Put on high heat and brown the vegetables slightly to develop flavour. As you are browning, sprinkle either dried basil or chopped fresh basil on the vegetables. When vegetables are slightly browned, remove from heat, add the cheese, and cover the pan.

In a separate stick-free fry pan, put the tomatoes and cook at medium hi heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. You want to let the juice from the tomatoes evaporate some. After 5 minutes, add the tomatoes to the rest of the vegetables and stir. Salt and pepper to taste.
