This recipe was born from an excess of tomatoes and squash in our garden. We were tired of plain old steamed squash so I came up with this and it has become one of my husbands all time favorites!

Everyone needs to try this recipe! It is delish! Pair it with garlic bread and it's like eating healthy pizza.
