Summer Squash Sauté



This is a family favorite that is easily adjustable to your taste. It can be sauteed in butter, olive oil, cooking oil, or my favorite stand by – bacon grease. Give it a try the next time you want a colorful, nutritional and delicious side dish! By the way, this mixture is also great as a pita bread sandwich!

Summer Squash Sauté

You will need:
Large, heavy skillet with lid
Large slotted spoon

Ingredients:
3-4 Zucchini Squash, sliced 1/4″ thick
3-4 Yellow Squash, sliced 1/4″ thick
1 Tomato, cut in chunks
1 Onion, cut in chunks
3 Tbsp butter (may substitute oil or bacon grease)
3 Tbsp Parmesan cheese (may substitute your favorite cheese)
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp seasoning salt

Directions:
Saute squash and onion in butter until lightly browned. Sprinkle with seasoning salt. Add the tomato, parmesan cheese and garlic salt. Cover and cook on medium low untill tender, about 5-8 minutes, stirring at least once.

Remove from pan and drain on paper towels, place in serving dish and enjoy!

Optional: I have oftened added shredded cabbage while cooking the squash. If you do this, cook the cabbage alone for a few minutes before adding squash.
