Marinated Ratatouille Hoagies

1 small zucchini, sliced
1 small yellow squash, sliced
1/2 medium red onion, sliced and quartered
1 bell pepper, sliced thinly into bite size pieces
3 to 4 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup balsamic vinaigrette: equal portions of olive oil and balsamic vinegar plus ground oregano, dried basil and garlic salt, to taste
flavored hummus of your choice
4 thin tomato slices
2 fresh, crusty hoagie or hero rolls
additional garlic salt, to taste

Toss zucchini, yellow squash, red onion, bell pepper and minced garlic with vinaigrette and marinate for 20 minutes or so, seasoning with additional garlic salt if needed. Saute vegetable mixture in saute pan over medium high heat until veggies are cooked through but not over cooked, about 10 minutes medium high to high heat is essential to ensure crispy veggies instead of soggy ones. Meanwhile, slice hoagie rolls in half and broil in oven until browned. Spread hummus on each roll half, top bottom roll half with tomato slices and pile on sauteed veggies. Cover with top roll half, serve with a crisp salad and enjoy. For variation, you could also roast the vegetables in an oven after marinating, instead of sauteing for a slightly different flavor. Jarred peppers in vinegar, sliced, make for some spicy flavor. Serves 2.
