Simple Summer Squash Recipe: Yellow Squash & Zucchini Shine in This Healthy Side Dish

Overloaded with summer squash? Here’s a squash recipe that couldn’t get much simpler to help use some of the ubiquitous squash and zucchini this time of year. Straight from the garden to the frying pan!

This easy vegetable recipe is the perfect side dish for chicken, beef, pork or lamb.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Servings: 4


Here’s how to make it:

  1. Warm a large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil and butter. Once butter is melted, add the onions and sauté until crisp-tender and starting to brown, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add squash, zucchini, tomatoes (with juice), pepper, salt and seasoning. Heat until boiling. Cover and cook over medium-low until the squash is crisp-tender (or as soft as you like it). Remove lid and boil until some of the liquid is evaporated.

Note: If freezing for later use, cook only a few minutes to mix all the ingredients, cool and freeze.
