Basil tomato squash

Submitted by Wendy Campbell

About the cook: 55 year old wife, and mother of two adult boys in rural western Pennsylvania.

About the dish: A fresh taste of summer. Low calorie, big flavor, satisfying. I just created it tonight instead of a caprese salad. (Because someone ate all the fresh mozzarella, ugh.)
