    I made this recipe years ago, before everything was online! This is a wonderful way to use up summer squash, and you can make it even if you don't have all the vegetables. I've made it with only green squash and it's still great. The different varieties add a nice color contrast but are not crucial to the overall taste. Very, very good.
