This is something new I decided to try. My family loves squash. I combined the recipe with pasta, so I kinda made it a vegetable pasta dish. It is bursting with flavor.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A simple and inventive way to cook zucchini and yellow squash in the summer when the vegetables are abundant. Basil adds a sweet pop of flavor to the dish. Garlic, onion salt, and Parmesan cheese add a hint of savory flavor. Combine it with your favorite pasta and sauce for an easy meal. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
