Sauteed Squash

Here is a simple, delicious recipe for cooking fresh squash!  My husband thought he didn't like squash until I sauteed it for him.  I use the same recipe for cooking zucchini and I have even mixed the two.  This recipe is a great way to enjoy some of your local summer produce!

Sautéed Squash 

3 medium fresh squash or zucchini
1 medium yellow or brown onion, chopped
1 t minced garlic, about 2 cloves
2 T butter or margarine*
1 t seasoned salt
½ t freshly ground black pepper

Wash squash and peel off any blemishes.  Cut off ends and cut in half the long way.  Cut each half in half to make four long sections and slice.  In a large skillet (with lid) melt butter or margarine.  Add squash, onion and garlic to skillet.  Cook covered on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until squash softens.  Remove lid and sauté an additional 3-5 minutes or until excess liquid is cooked off.   
Serves 8

*For those allergic to dairy, make sure your margarine dairy-free.
