“I get lots of requests to "bring your squash dish" to different gatherings. I first tasted this dish at Luby's Cafeteria. It was published in their 50th Anniversary cookbook and I have adapted it to my taste. The original recipe calls for pimento or red sweet peppers instead of green chilis. I'm allergic to bell peppers so I found a substitute. You could also use seeded, chopped fresh tomatoes for a different taste.”
