I absolutely love yellow squash, but they are hard to come by here. I noticed some beautiful fresh ones when I was grocery shopping th eother day, so I bought a LOT! i ahve been trying different ways of cooking them, and last night we tried this recipe. We loved it!!! I cut the squash into quarters instead of slicing them, but otherwise made as posted. Thankyou for sharing your recipe! :)

This was just lovely. I steamed the squash with the lemon juice instead of water. I also added some garlic and a touch of lemon pepper. Thanks!
