Fried Zucchini/Yellow Squash (Quick, Easy and Cheesy)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Sarah in New York

I make this at least once a week when our garden is exploding with zucchini and yellow squash. It only takes about 10 minutes and the parmesean cheese makes it wonderful. You can't go wrong with this simple recipe!

This is a Summer Regular on our table. I prepare differently -- steam the squash and a large- rough chopped onion. Then I scatter croutons in an oven-proof bowl, add the squash mix, top with grated cheddar, and cover with foil. Place in 350* oven for just long enought to melt the cheese, and serve. Happy to see it here -- Thanks for posting.
