"Made this tonight with zucchini & eight-ball squash in addition to yellow, and we enjoyed it very much! I also added some seasoned salt."

"this is quick,easy, and very good. I make it often in the summer when yellow squash and dill are plentiful in the garden. I usually add a bit more dill. This is a recipe that even pleases family members who "don't like yellow squash"!"
