spaghetti + summer squash = delicious!

Looking for something quick & healthy for dinner tonight?  Well my friends, you've come to the right place.  And did I mention the time involved would be minimal?  Add that one to the pro's.  Summer is winding down, and the last thing you want to do is waste lots of your precious play-time slaving away in the kitchen.  Am I right?  Of course I'm right.  So, don't let me take up any more of your time, either.  Take 20 minutes to make this dinner, and enjoy the bounteous fruits of your SLIM efforts.
