Simple Skillet Zucchini Squash

"My mom threw this together the last time I was at her house and I loved it. I didn't get her exact recipe, but I did my best to recreate it. This is a great, easy recipe for a fresh summer squash crop! I sometimes use a large onion instead of a small one. The onion really soaks up a lot of flavor when it cooks and I absolutely love it. Of course, I really like onion a lot. If you like onions a lot, I recommend using more than called for."

    Always looking for new ways to cook zucchini, came across this and liked the sound of it. I also didnt add salt and didnt cook for so long as I find zucchini easily turns to mush. Very tasty result, love the added parmesan.

    I never get tired of summer squash. This was so simple, but wonderful. I didn't cook mine quite as long as written before uncovering.... just personal preference. Because of the beef bouillon, I really didn't see the need for adding more salt; it was yummy as it was! Thanx for posting this.

    I just made this and love it. I only had to cook it covered for 10 minutes before uncovering.

    I made this yesterday for lunch and decided this is my new favorite way to make Zucchini. This is so easy and very good.I think the neighbors will not get any Zucchini this year. Give your Mom a big hug for this one.
