1 pound yellow summer squash

1 pound zucchini

3 cups tomatoes, chopped

1/4 cup green onions (scallions), thinly sliced

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1 cup vegetable broth

1 1/2 cups Caesar salad croutons, coarsely crushed

1/2 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese, shredded

The squash is good on its own, but it was jazzed up with the croutons and cheese.
