Sautéed Squash with Tomatoes and Basil

On with 0 Comment
Sauteed Squash with Tomatoes and BasilI've mentioned before in one of the recipes that my kids don't like squash as much they like potato wafers. The solution to this problem is to come up with interesting squash recipes that not only look colorful but taste great as well. Today's squash recipe fulfills both these criteria. My kids loved this colorful squash recipe as it is both tangy and spicy with an aromatic flavor of herbs. I've used a generous amount of tomatoes, basil, and dried herbs to give a unique flavor to this squash recipe. You can also add zucchini to this preparation to make it more nutritious. You can either make it dry or keep it little soupy. I preferred the latter version so that it can be consumed both with bread and steamed rice.
