~ Tasty Veggie & Bean Medley ~

Cassie *


A great summer side dish, that I threw together. Some fresh corn off the cob would be great in this as well. Add some meat and it would be hearty enough to serve as a meal.

How to Make ~ Tasty Veggie & Bean Medley ~


  1. In a large skillet or a wok as I used, cook bacon until crisp. Drain. Leave three tablespoons bacon drippings in skillet.

    Add the garlic and onion and fry until tender.

    Add the squashes, tomato, broth, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, cabbage and stir. Place a lid over mix and steam for 10 minutes or until crisp tender, stirring occasionally.

    A few pinches if red pepper flakes is great on this as well.
