Mediterranean Squash Stew


The picture above is snapshot of a Mediterranean Squash Stew that we had for supper tonight. Hubby got this recipe from the health department, he thought the recipe sounded really good and decided to try it out. Let me tell you, it was amazing! It's like a vegetarian meal, there's no meat in it, it's all pure fresh vegetables. I decided to share the recipe here, somebody might wanna try it out, especially to those who are veggie lovers. This is really good, something different and it sure satisfied my cravings, even my 4 year old liked it! Anyhow, below is the recipe for it...Enjoy!
