From the Test Kitchen

Tonight, fresh gnocchi elevate a simple medley of late-summer vegetables. We’re tossing the pillowy dumplings with summer squash, sweet peppers, and tomatoes (yours may be red or yellow), all coated in a light butter sauce. Shaved parmesan cheese, sprinkled on top just before serving, makes for a gourmet garnish.

In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the squash in a single layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned.
