A simple dinner from the garden

I got these three beautiful summer squash from the garden yesterday afternoon and I have a seemingly endless bowl of beautiful red tomatoes on my counter.  I made a simple but delicious dinner by cubing the squash and cooking it briefly in olive oil with a couple tablespoons of garlic and a little salt & pepper. 

Then I boiled water and cooked a batch of potato gnocchi. I mixed the squash and gnocchi with about 8 ounces of feta cheese, a handful of basil from the herb garden torn to pieces, and a big tomato diced up. The end product looked like this...

... and tasted delightful!
