IMG_8333

Serves: 2

-1 cup of broccoli florets

-1 cup of diced yellow squash (about 1 small yellow squash)

-8 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, cubed

-2 cloves garlic, minced

-3 tablespoons olive oil

-1/2 cup of water

-2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

-salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet, add the 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 1/2 cup of water. Turn the heat to medium-high, and add the broccoli and squash. Cover the pan with a lid so that the vegetables can steam for about 8-10 minutes, or until fork tender. Add the garlic, fresh basil, and cubed mozzarella into the pan. Taste for salt and pepper. Stir the mixture for about 1 minute in the pan (heat off) so that the mozzarella JUST begins to melt. Serve warm and enjoy!
