I thought I would try creating something I hadn't seen before. I combined an element of stir fry with some ingredients I had seen popping up in other squash recipes. Squash, onion and jalapeno are fried with bacon for a tasty summer side dish.

Seven or eight stars! The best yellow squash recipe EVER. I didn't have the jalapeno peppers but I added a green bell pepper instead. Both me and my husband went over the moon! Thnk you Ann Girl! Read More

To me this was ok. Not a repeat but just ok. The soy sauce made it very interesting. Good addition though. Read More

This is a good recipe, however, I prefer it with garlic added and without the soy sauce and jalapenos. Read More

Loved this squash. Just different enough from our usual but will go with so many dishes. I used poblano instead of jalapenos since we're a little wimpy about too much heat. Thanks Ann. Read More

Prepared this as written including the unusual addition (at least for me) of the fresh chopped jalapenos - but I couldn't resist adding some fresh minced garlic too. Colorful and delicious even though the soy sauce kind of dulled the vibrant fresh yellow color of the squash. The taste by adding it however made up for its somewhat compromised appearance. Loved the addition of the jalapenos which provided a splash of color and interest more than it did taste. And as is usually the case bacon makes it even better! Nice creative twist on the same ol' squash. Read More

Just made this dish and I love it! Hubby tried it and liked it also but not one of his faves. I tweeked it a little adding some garlic salt and onion powder also replaced jalapeno with a small cayenne pepper minced up. All in all very good side dish will probably make it again:) Read More

I have to give this recipe 4 stars only because I made modifications. I sauteed onions yellow squash and zucchini in bacon drippings. Then I seasoned it with Mrs. Dash seasoning spice and a dash of salt. I'll try the original recipe soon. Read More

My husband the veggie hater asked me to make this again - a miracle! I loved it too. I did add three cloves of garlic used turkey bacon and a bit of sesame oil and used salt and pepper rather than soy sauce. Delicious. Read More

I liked this one a lot. It was nice to have a new way to cook squash. I didn't have any bacon, but I used salt pork in my skillet with a little olive oil. I think the final result was pretty close. I didn't add any soy sauce because it tasted so good without it. I loved the extra spice the jalapeno gave it, but didn't make it too spicy. Read More
