It’s important when cooking this dish to incorporate anything you want into this dish- I love onions and bell peppers, so I try to incorporate them when i can, but you can add tomatoes, garlic, anything you can think of you could add to this excellent dish, and I guarantee you’ll enjoy it.

Get your hands on this delicious, nutritious, and all natural recipe today:


5 squash

1 Zucchini

1 Whole Onion

1/2 Bell Pepper

Salt and Pepper

3 tbs Olive Oil

Basil/Sage (optional)

thyme (optional)



  1. Cut up the squash and zucchini into slices, the onions into circles, and the bell peppers into slivers. If you’re adding anything else, now’s a good time to cut it all up too- think slices of juicy tomatoes or even jalapenos if you’re looking for a little heat.
  2. Heat up your skillet, adding the olive oil and heating up the pan to a medium-high temperature.
  3. Add about half of your squash and zucchini, then add salt and pepper (and other seasonings if you choose to add them), the rest of the squash and zucchini, then top the dish with the onions and bell peppers.
  4. At this point, you want to cover the dish and turn down the heat to medium, and let it cook, stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes, or until you decide the veggies are the right consistency and tenderness. This part of the cooking process is completely up to you, but personally I don’t like my vegetables overcooked or mushy.
  5. Let your veggies cool for about 5-10 minutes, then you can serve them! They’re great on their own, or served with a meat dish- anything you could think of.

There’s really nothing better than the all natural simplicity of this dish. All you really need to make a stellar dish are your veggies, a little salt, pepper, olive oil and T.L.C. and you’ve got a dish that you can feed to anyone, and serve up in a flash. How great is that? How many other dishes can you make with such limited resources? Inspire yourself by adding different ingredients or stick to your basics; either way, get busy cooking.
