While shopping together one day, my then four-year-old daughter, Gabriella, presented me with a package of yellow squash and a box of Florida grape tomatoes saying, “I want this for dinner, Papa.” The simplicity of using only onions and marjoram, and patient sautéing to bring out the sweetness of the squash and grape tomatoes, makes this recipe distinctively Italian. This dish has become a family favorite.
You can make this dish several hours ahead of time and keep it in the pan. When ready to serve, warm it over low heat. It will lose its freshness if kept longer or if refrigerated.
