"I made this with a combination of zucchini and yellow summer squash from my garden. I used Pace medium picante sauce to give it a little more kick than mild. The dish was really flavorful which is great because zucchini can be very bland. My son and I loved it. Even my husband who usually hates zucchini thought it was pretty good. Next time I might try adding some fresh or frozen corn like in the Mexican dish calabacitas."
