This is the way I have been serving summer squash to my family to years. It is so easy and tastes great. I hope you enjoy it too!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • salt & pepper


  1. Melt butter in large skillet.
  2. Add onion and cook just till tender.
  3. Add yellow squash and continue cooking over medium heat, stirring until squash begins to soften.

  5. I add lots of salt and pepper.

Bev, this was delicious! We loved the buttery taste the squash gets. It gets cooked, but not too soft. This is a simple basic recipe with a minimum of ingredients, yet it could be on the most elegant table! We used the salt and pepper and also a sprinkling of paprika for color. Thanks for a recipe I will use often!

Mmmmmmmm. This recipe is perfect! I don't eat squash a lot but this recipe could change that. It brings out the flavor flawlessly. I had no idea that squash could be so good!
