My ex-mother-in-law gave me this recipe years ago and every time I make it I receive praise from my family and friends. I don't believe there has ever been one person who does not love Summer Squash made this way. Also, I have found that people who do not ordinarily like squash, like this recipe. I hope you will try this unique way of cooking Summer Squash.
