A new healthier veggie dish

Some people wonder what they would do with all these veggies that are about to go bad.  Before they go bad here's a recipe for you. 

Take each of those veggies - just to name a few:  carrots, peppers, onions, yellow squash, zucchini, mushrooms, turnips, or anything else you can find that would be  great in a hot dish.  You slice or dice the veggies the way you want them.  Throw then in a pot add some water and steam some.  Wait for the water to cook down most of the way.  Add some Fat Free Italian dressing.  For those of you who are saying fat free really?  All I want to say is my husband has been on fat free dressing for years.  He loves it and really never had a problem with it since I told him it was healthier.  Give it a try.  It won't hurt.  So back to the recipe really.  You can cook these down the veggies with get soft - it has lots of flavor.  I'm sure you could cook this in a crock-pot as well.  The best way I've found to cook it for flavor was on a campfire in a foil pan.  (helps to save on your pans and dish washing)  Also to make it balanced and some chicken in there and there's a complete "one pot" meal.

Try and enjoy!!!
