Rosemary Peas ‘N’ Squash
The beauty of this recipe is that I can substitute any vegetables and still have a terrific side dish. I grow fresh rosemary and use it to season whatever garden bounty I harvest. Since zucchini is abundant almost every year, this recipe puts that to good use.—Emily R Chaney, Blue Hill, Maine
