My family and I loved this recipe! I took heed of the other reviews concerning blandness so I added a garlic clove and threw some corn in at the end. Yum oh on this veggie side dish! Read More

This was a quick easy dish to serve with a SW entree a welcome change from the usual beans or rice. I served it with a flavorful chorizo-shrimp-rice stuffed pepper and a black bean salad with a tangy lime vinaigrette so having a lightly seasoned side dish as well complimented the meal. I thought salt black pepper and cilantro were all that it really needed -- nice and fresh. Read More

You Can Make This For Me ANYtime! I was looking for a recipe to use yellow squash and zucchini from this week's CSA and a friend shared this link. I didn't have a pepper so I used garlic--which is actually what my friend uses all the time instead of the pepper--and added some spices. I also threw in a handful of Trader's Joe's roasted corn per a suggestion elsewhere in these comments. My husband came home in a bit of a mood with a headache and by the time he finished this he was smiling! Read More

This dish was just ok for me. It did make a nice side to compliment more flavorful foods though as the flavor didn't over-power anything but it was a little bland. Read More

As written it's pretty bland. My 10.5 month old usually loves squash and zuchinni and she wasn't even that into it. (It's not the chili. She just doesn't do bland food). I'm going to perk up the leftovers with some cumin and see if that works better. Read More
