S.T.O.P. — Squash, Tomatoes, Onions and Peppers — my favorite side dish ever. Here are the specifics:

– 2 Large yellow squash (summer squash), sliced

– 1 large Vidalia onion, sliced (if you can’t get Vidalia where you are, just be sure it’s a sweet onion)

– 1 bell pepper (for extra sweetness, use a yellow one)

– 1 can diced tomatoes, undrained

– 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced

– 2 T. fresh basil, chopped

– 4 T. butter

– salt and pepper to taste

– 1/3 c. water

Place everything in a large sauce pan with a lid. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until squash is tender (30 minutes or so — I throw it all together and let it simmer until the main dish is ready). Enjoy!

P.S. — A great main dish pairing is coming up on Friday.

    that’s right up my alley! Do you mean pumpkin when you say squash or do you mean something more related to the zucchini/pattypan variety?
