10 Easy Side Dishes

Growing up we always had a “complete meal.” My mom was always big that you had to have your meat, vegetables, and a starch of some kind. So I guess that just stuck with me and I always have to have a few sides with our meals. This recipe below is so easy and one of our favorites.

Italian Squash

  • 2 Zucchini
  • 2 Squash
  • 1 can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 can of Spaghetti Sauce
  • 1 tsp of Minced Garlic
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Mozzarella

Slice the veggies up and throw them in a skillet with a drizzle of olive oil and the minced garlic. When the veggies are tender add in the diced tomato and spaghetti sauce. Cook the mixture together for about 4-5 minutes. Season with salt/pepper and top with mozzarella.

Serve this side dish with grilled chicken or pork chops!

I found some other yummy side dish recipes on Pinterest that I thought I’d share with y’all. I know most of us are currently at home more and cooking at home more, so I thought it would be fun to share some recipes to change up your normal meals.
