I just want to print out this (and other!) recipes, but cannot do so unless I want to print out all 5 pages, complete with color photos. What am I missing here???? In short, I want a one- or two-page recipe that I can print out. Please give us that option!!!!

Easy, delicious! Great combination of flavors. My squash got a bit charred, but no one complained! Thanks for a quick, lovely dinner.
