  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°. Spread zucchini, yellow squash, bell pepper, onion and garlic in jelly roll pan, 15 1/2x10 1/2x1 inch. Spray vegetables with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and red pepper.
  • 2
    Bake about 30 minutes, turning vegetables once, until vegetables are tender and lightly browned.
  • 3
    Place vegetables in blender or food processor. Cover and blend on high speed about 1 minute, stopping blender occasionally to scrape sides, until smooth.
  • 4
    Serve warm, or refrigerate at least 2 hours until chilled. Serve with Baked Pita Crisps and vegetable dippers.
  • 5
    Baked Pita Chips: Heat oven to 375°. Split each pita bread around edge with knife to make 2 rounds. Lightly brush oil over pita rounds. Sprinkle with basil and cheese. Cut each round into 8 wedges. Place in single layer in 2 ungreased jelly roll pans, 15 1/2x10 1/2x1 inch, or on 2 cookie sheets. Bake uncovered 6 to 8 minutes or until light brown and crisp. Cool slightly (chips will continue to crisp as they cool). Serve warm or cool. Store in tightly covered container up to 3 weeks at room temperature.
