Squash Stew

Author Notes:

This is a simple yet satisfying recipe my mother-in-law often made. She would serve it with fried cutlets and a side of greens. It is light enough to serve even during the summer.


Serves: 4


  • 2 Zucchini (peeled and cubed)
  • 2 Potatoes (peeled and cubed)
  • 1 Onion (sliced)
  • 1 cup Tomatoes (puréed)
  • 1 handful Parsley(chopped)
  • 4 sprigs Basil (torn or sliced)
  • 1 splash Olive oil
