Zucchini & Summer Squash Skillet

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MarthaStewartWanabe

This is a quick, flavorful side dish that is sure to please. I like to cook this in the summer when fresh zucchini and summer (yellow) squash are abundant. If you would like a stronger onion flavor, substitute 1/2 cup of sliced onions for the scallions--or use both!

This is a quick and delicious way to prepare fresh squash. The only change was to add in fresh basil at the end of cooking. Made for *Aussie Swap May 2009*
