I use one large Vidalia onion and 3 med yellow squash. I cut into chunks not slices both for onion and squash. I only used 2 tbsp. of butter. I used garlic powder and blk pepper which I put on the onions I sautéed them first to get caramelized then added the squash... this is a keeper.

Very delicious! The cooking fat was a combination of olive oil and a small amount of butter for flavor. The fat was reduced by about half. I used 2 medium yellow squash and half an onion. The onion was cooked for a few minutes prior to adding the sliced squash. The pan was covered and the vegetables were allowed to brown slightly. I might try adding in fresh garlic next time.

This was fantastic! I used 3 squashes and cooked them in batches, keeping the cooked ones warm. I cooked the onions on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes so they would carmelize a little, and then added the squash, garlic salt and pepper. Such a delicious taste with a minimum of prep time; just my kind of recipe, easy and with terrific flavor. Thanks for posting this great recipe!
