~ Tasty Veggie & Bean Medley ~

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.

    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.
