tasty tuesday ~ yellow squash w/ shallots, sun-dried tomatoes and basil

This recipe was the last one I had in the que before concentrating on a new season of flavors so I thought I would share. Yellow Squash w/Shallot, Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Basil is from the phenomenal cookbook called At Blanchard's Table:  A Trip To The Beach Cookbook by Melinda Blanchard, Robert Blanchard and Ben Fink. This cookbook makes me want to get on the first available plane going south to the Bahamas. The recipes are filled with layers of flavor and the photography makes me drool. 

This recipe is simple to make and really tasty. I loved the twang of the sun-dried tomatoes with the sweetness of the basil. Yum, Yum, Yummy! I think it would make a great side dish for fish or poultry.
