Italian Seasoned Summer Squash and Tomatoes

A wonderful side dish to grilled meat.. this low carb side dish is one sure to please... tossed with a little olive oil and butter and seasoned with Italian herbs and garlic... makes for a delicious blend of flavors...
Best of all... minutes to prepare.... and just pop into the oven!
Wash the summer squash .. leave the skin on and slice it thickly... cut the bigger slices in quarters and the smaller ones in half.
I use a little melted butter ... I personally think it adds a little more flavor... you can use all olive oil if you prefer.. just up the quantity of the olive oil.
This recipe makes enough for two servings... just double or quadruple the quantities if you need more.
For those on a low carb diet.. this is a perfect side dish..
I hope you enjoy it!
