"That's the best basic recipe I found on the Internet. I had store-bought 12 oz squash medley and wanted to use it. I utilized this recipe. The only omissions I made were: much less garlic, no black pepper or spices except for sea salt. Sauteeing took much longer, since my veggies were cold from the fridge. So it took about 16 min to prepare on the skillet. The result was absolutely delicious, looked picture-perfect and appetizing, and so good for you !

Thank you so much for the simple and wonderful recipe !"

"Wonderful side dish. I used egg substitute. Also used a piece of bacon instead of oil."
