Cindy S


Don't be deceived !! This dish is full of goodies beside just squash. Bell peppers, onions, squash, garlic, smoked sausage, yum!! You will love this if you like any of the above.
Change the amount of rice cooked according to how many servings you need. Also, egg noodles can be used in the place of rice.
