This is a new recipe that I received from my city's recipe group.
It's a great recipe for those who just love their veggies! I could not find summer squash so I ended up using the regular yellow and green kind. Since this was new, I wasn't sure if I was making it right at first. I was concerned that things would not be edible. After all, everything looked *mushy* when I started stirring it together. However, since it called for one egg, this gave it more definition and by the time it was done, it all looked seriously delicious! It has a very light and summery flavor, thus reminding me of how summer is still alive and kicking. My husband, who is a veggie lover, enjoyed this recipe :) I think it's a keeper :)
