This is my favorite thing to do with summer squash (well, this and the casserole thing). It tastes incredible and it’s so easy! A friend gave me some zucchini and squash this week (bless her heart – she feels sorry for me getting my garden in so late). So this is what I did:
- 3 or 4 zucchini and summer squash, thinly sliced
- 1 small onion (I used two, but mine from my garden were really small)
- 2 tbs butter (or a bit more)
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- salt & pepper
- 1/3 cup grated cheddar or colby jack cheese
Melt the butter and add the garlic and onion. Sautee these on medium heat until tender, then add the remaining ingredients. Stir together and cook until the squash is tender. Remove from heat, then add the cheese. Salt & pepper to taste. Oh my gosh … so good.
