My dad gave me some squash from the garden. Somehow I knew this would be good! Thank you!

Wonderful! I used olive oil instead of butter. I also found that it only took about 10 minutes to cook (in a heavy cast iron pan), not the 20-25 the instructions say.

This is how my Great Aunt Minnie would make fresh squash and new onions grown from the garden. It was a favorite in the family. The key is cooking it softly and not over browning it. We love the favor of the onions sauted lightly in the squash. Thanks so much for sharing a old family favorite.

This is sure not how I fix(ed) my squash, at least not until today. These are the same wonderful squash that Thalhimers' Richmond Room used to serve, and we had them a few times a week. I've missed them, but they will absolutely be fixed weekly from now on. Thanks, Bev, for a simple and delicious way to enjoy my squash.

I too have been cooking zucchini the same way. I add whole cumin seeds and let them crackle before adding onion. I also add some finely chopped tomatoes about 3-4 minutes prior to taking it off the heat. It tastes great.

I have been cooking squash, both yellow and zucchini, this way for years. However, I use olive oil instead of the butter.... but after all the rave reviews I will try it with the butter next time! Sometimes I use garlic salt (Lowry's brand-the absolute BEST) instead of regular sea or kosher salt and it is quite tasty. Vidalias or other sweet onions are great, too, when in season....

Turned out wonderful! I added some minced garlic as well as a zucchini. The cooking method was great. Thanks for the recipe.

I have made squash in a similar manner for years, but I never covered and let it cook over low heat like you suggested. It was DELICIOUS!!! I actually had some squach and zuccini that I had bought and I used them both and it was SOOOO good! Thanks!

This is a great recipe. My mother used to sautee yellow crook neck squash or zucchini squash this wqy. In addition to the onion, and maybe a little mashed garlic, she would sprinkle some Dill weed over the top and let it steam done as your recipe calls for. The dill is a really delicious addition to it.
