    A simple dish that allows a bit of variety to your usual favorite veggies. Try using Cilantro instead of oregano. I use about 2 tbsp fresh chopped

      I always said I never met a squash I didn't like -- well, I finally met one. First of all, I baked the chayote squash like I do any other. It was tasteless and horrible and I threw it out. I used the remainder with this recipe and the onions were very good. It was all right and eatable. I will never make it again. Chayote squash certainly needs a lot of help to give it taste. These are my thoughts and not reflective of the chef.

      I really like chayote squash for a number of reasons- low cal, low carb, very versatile. This is an easy way to prepare the squash, but I do a few things differently: First, I halve and boil the chayote for about 15 minutes, to make them a little more tender. Then, I add the onions to a hot pan, with butter-flavor spray (to cut down on calories- no oil), saute them for about 3-5 minutes, then add the chayote. This is also good without oregano, or with a little shredded chedder cheese on top. I hope Darlene10 will try again, but if not, thanks for the recipe anyway!
