In Hobe Sound, Florida, Evelyn DeLuca quickly prepares this colorful vegetable medley on the stovetop. Coated with a pineapple sauce, the pretty dinner accompaniment offers tasty change of pace.

"I loved this dish. How nice to find a different combo of veggies. My only complaint is the sauce was great and just sweet enough but runny, so I thickened it and it lost its flavor. That was my fault and i'll make adjustments next time."
