    Debbie R.'s Note:

    Well, actually it's America's Test Kitchen, but it's the same group. This is really delicious. I could eat 2 lbs of squash at one time....not sure I even need anything else at the meal. I didn't use any herb. You can use zucchini, summer squash or a combo of the two. I think a combination of the two is really pretty.

    1. 1
      Prepare the zucchini/squash: wash it, cut off ends, 1/4-inch slices. Cut the slices in half. (Alternatively, you could cut the squash in half first and then make 1/4-inch slices.).
    2. 2
      Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Add onion and cook until it begins to soften, 2 or 3 minutes. Add the zucchini/summer squash. Cook until spotty brown and tender, about 8 minutes.
    3. 3
      Clear the center of the pan, and put in the garlic. Cook, mashing the garlic into the pan with the back of a spatula, until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Stir the garlic into the squash. Stir in parsley. Salt and pepper to taste.

      This is delicious, although I added a bit of salt and pepper. Easy to make and something I do often. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Photo Tag game.

      I have made this many times with crookneck and zucchini squash. I absolutely love it and it's a great way to use summer bounty from your garden. I was never sure of what spices to use though. Sometimes I just used a little minced garlic or Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil Garlic seasoning. Thanks for a great recipe!
