READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by breezermom

I hesitated to post this recipe because it is so simple. But I didn't see anything like it on recipezaar, so here it is. It uses up things that are often in abundance in the garden, and is really simple and quick...bringing out the best flavors of the vegetables.

For more years than I can count, I've made this but cooked the squash in the pan with the onion. It is at a high risk to get overdone quickly. Steaming it, then adding to the softened onions is the perfect answer for this. Thanks.

  1. Wash and quarter the squash. Steam in a skillet or saucepan over water until al dente. (Time depends on the size of your squash -- usually about 4-5 minutes.).
  2. Heat the butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute the onions until translucent. Add the steamed squash and season with salt and pepper to taste.
