Mom’s Summer Squash

Mom’s Summer Squash

Ingredients:

  • 1Kg squash and/or zucchini (baby marrow), sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeds removed, sliced
  • 2 smallish tomatoes or one large tomato, peeled and cut into wedges
  • ½ yellow onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • Olive oil
  • 5 or 6 slices of cheddar cheese
  • Basil, either dry or chopped fresh
  • Salt and pepper

 

Method:

  1. Put onion, garlic, squash, bell pepper into a large saucepan with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Put on high heat and brown the vegetables slightly to develop flavor.
  2. As you are browning, sprinkle either dried basil or chopped fresh basil on the vegetables. When vegetables are slightly browned, remove from heat, add the slices of cheese, and cover the pan.
  3. In a separate stick-free fry pan, put the tomatoes and cook at medium hi heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. You want to let the juice from the tomatoes evaporate some.
  4. After 5 minutes, add the tomatoes to the rest of the vegetables and stir. Salt and pepper to taste.
