I love tomatoes and squash is my favorite summer vegetable. Being from the south - I do love my fried foods! I've had to learn to cook low fat due to health reasons and these "almost fried" vegetables are pretty close to the real thing.

We tried these wonderful low-guilt tomatoes in Cathy's Fat Cat BLT and were completely bowled over... so simple and tasty!
