Summer Squash

Hubby and I have decided to get back into shape. We’re starting to hit the gym again and upping the number of fruits and veggies in our diets. I’m also going to be trying to bake less. This makes me sad, but I’ll definitely keep baking, just not 3 times a week like I have been.

Vindicate the Vegetable is a new blogging event is a perfect way for us to bump up our veggie intake and to try out some new vegetables. Hubby and I like most veggies, so it’ll be great to learn new recipes as well. This week, the vegetable is yellow summer squash – one of our favorites!
I love cooking the squash this way. It’s so simple and delicious.

Foil veggie pack – serves 4 – by ME!
2 yellow summer squash
2 zucchini
~3 Tbsp Italian dressing
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a large piece of foil in a square pan or Pyrex dish.

Cut vegetables into cubes. Toss with dressing. Place veggies in foil packet and season with salt and pepper. Fold foil up to enclose the veggies in a packet.

Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

The foil packet can be used with a variety of cooking methods. The foil pack can also be cooked on a grill.

    This looks amazing! I did something with acorn squash and bacon this weekend, but this looks infinitely better! Maybe I’ll try it for Thanksgiving.

    Well I’ve never tried squash wrapped in bacon before….maybe I’d be singing a different tune? I’ve never met anything covered in bacon that I didn’t like..

    Yum! I had prosciutto on hand, so I used strips of that.. I did some with crushed red pepper flakes rather than jalapeño .. My family preferred without the pepper-they thought it just tasted better that way…I tried all ways and it is just a yummy, flexible recipe! Thanks!
