    pedspeech's Note:

    This isn't a recipe as much as a method of cooking summer squash. I gave amounts but treat it more as a ratio than a rule- allow at least one squash per serving because it cooks down to a very small amount even though it looks like you are cooking a lot.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 summer squash (zucchini works but I prefer yellow)
    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • water
    • salt and pepper


    1. 1
      Slice squash as thinly as possible- I use a mandoline to do this quickly.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Add squash and onions and season then cover with water.
    4. 4
      Cook, stirring occasionally until water evaporates.
    5. 5
      Can be eaten at this point, but I like to cook it until it is almost brown, you just have to stir very frequently because it will stick pretty bad. Cooking it a long time will caramelize the vegetables and it becomes a sweet side dish. Warning- it isn't pretty, but it is tasty!
    6. 6
      Make this into a main dish by adding chunks of ham during cooking. Also delicious!

      This method really brings out the natural sweetness of yellow summer squash. I did allow the squash and onions to brown/carmelize just a bit as mentioned. I'm always happy to find new methods and new recipes for yellow summer squash because I usually have tons in the summer. Thanx for a new recipe!

      Another great recipe from my 2009 PAC baby. Even the kids ate their vegetables when I served this dish. I can't wait for when summer is here with more reasonable prices for the squash. I'll be making this one often.
