Bacon Squash Saute

This delicious medley is my favorite way to serve zucchini and squash. The bacon and onion add just the right amount of flavor and crunch. —Jodi Grable, Springfield, Missouri

    Good side dish that I served with the Glazed Apricot Cornish Hens in the same issue. I strongly suggest making only what can be eaten at one time as the leftovers did not hold up well and became so mushy they were not edible.

    Wonderful recipe!!! I made it as a meal. The changes I made were I added a few baby bella mushrooms when I sauteed, served it over rice, and topped it with a few cut tomatoes, added a sprinkle of Mrs. Dash Origianl Blend, a small handfull of crumb feta cheese, and a few dashes of soy sauce. We started off this meal with the Summer Garden Salad found on this site.

    I used all yellow squash, just because that's what we had home. Regardless, a yummy side dish that's easy to make!~ Theresa
