    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and jalapeño and sauté for two minutes. Add the squash, red bell pepper, tomato, okra, and half the green onion (save remaining for garnish) and sauté, stirring occasionally, for another 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are fork-tender and beginning to brown. When vegetables are done, add hot sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
