I prepared all ingredients, substituting broccoli florets for the green pepper, the night before. Had my wife put all in slow cooker before she left for work since she goes in later than I do. It was wonderfully cooked at 6 pm. It does have an unusual flavor with the squash and corn together. It didn't need to be thickened with the tomato paste, either. I think a pound of cooked, ground pork sausage would make it even better.
