"Great way to partner fresh summer veggies. Quick prep time and no fuss finish. Healthy side dish."

"I think 2T of oil is a bit much - the dish was oily even after letting it saute a bit longer than I normally would. That being said, I thought it was DELICIOUS and would love to try it with cubes of mozzarella in it (like a bruschetta). Perfect summer grilled meal companion!"

"Delicious! I have an abundance of yellow squash and basil in my garden and so I thought I would try this. I absolutely loved this but my kids wouldn't touch it. My husband doesn't care for squash so I got to devour this by myself. In more than one sitting of course. It tastes just as good heated up the next day! Thank you for sharing!"

"I have made this recipe and will be making it tonight. My husband and son like it and asked for it again and they are not veggie lovers."
