Skillet Squash Au Gratin

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

This is a special favorite. It may be served as is for a side-dish or spooned atop hot cooked brown or white rice for a meatless main dish. Use one type of squash or mix them up. Recipe came from Good Housekeeping magazine years ago.

Good recipe, but I changed it up quite a bit. I used some garlic powder and onion flakes because I had no onion. I used Parmesean instead of Cheddar cheese. Neither my husband nor I liked the "stewed tomato" all that much. I think I'll leave the tomato out next time. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in skillet. Add squash, onion, salt, pepper and tomatoes. Cook, covered 12-15 minutes or until tender.
  2. Sprinkle with soy sauce to taste, if desired. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Note; I have often substituted a 14-ounce can of redi-cut tomatoes for the fresh tomatoes above. You can use canned Italian- or Mexican-flavored tomatoes for a different flavor.
