"This quick, easy summer recipe was delicious and even my kids loved it! I used heart healthy olive oil instead of canola--just add oil to veggies then add to pan."

"this is an excellent side dish for any grilled meat I can think of.....I also throw in some yellow squash and zucchini from the garden too....I like to throw some fresh basil on it with the parmesan cheese when i serve it... I make this at least once a week in summer & everyone just loves it!"
