    I had this dish at a local diner and loved it. So I recreated it at home it's an easy tasty dish. It looks like you spent a lot of time making it and it comes together so easily. In this picture I used just zucchini but I have made it with summer squash or a mix of both, whatever I have on hand, and it's great.
