Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • For a spicier option, add 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon of oregano, and 1 tablespoon of hot sauce (I use Franks® Red Hot®). This adds a slightly different color along with a robust flavor to the squash.

A very healthy low fat side dish that's perfect for the grill! I add a little italian seasoning leave out the olive oil and just add some parmesan cheese right before serving.

Zucchini cooked in olive oil with tomatoes, onions and garlic is something very familiar to me - I grew up with it and make it often. This was the first time I had Hubs "take it out to the grill" and, while there certainly was "no mess," I found I much prefer both the taste and texture of the vegetables when I good them as I usually do, in a skillet on the stove. Cooked this way they took on some of the charcoal flavor which I didn't like. And for reasons I can't explain, the vegetables just didn't have the complexity of flavor as when I cook them on the stove - perhaps it was because these were more or less steamed. It was nice to take the mess out of the kitchen so to speak, but I think I'd rather have an extra pan to wash.

My Dad made this since I was a child and cooked over an open fire, but being more civilized, I use charcoal..anyway, he used potatoes and onions with butter sal and pepper..cook the same way. Always a hit at family gatherings and even today I make this for my family.

I decided to do this on the stove-top as a saute. I used 1 zucchini, 1 yellow squash, 2 tomatoes, half each of a red & yellow onion, 6+ cloves of garlic and 1 fennel bulb. I seasoned with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Omitted the fresh parsley. Lots of 'juice', so I thickened it a bit with cornstarch and served it over 'Triple-Grain Pilaf' from AR alongside 'Slayer's Sweet, Tangy and Spicy Kabobs" which is also from AR.

I made this using butternut squash and it was a breeze. No fuss no muss. I did add more seasonings and the whole family went back for seconds. Thank you!

I found these to not have much flavor.

Very good. Nice light and fresh flavor. I put in the optional tomatoes and fresh parsley from my garden and extra garlic. Great side dish. I had it with Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken from this website. I will be making this again soon.
