Yellow Squash, Zucchini and Onions

So simple a side-dish I’m almost afraid to call it a recipe. My go-to side whenever I feel like dinner needs a few more vegetables. See notes at bottom.

Serves: Four (as a side)
Required Equipment:
Large skillet
Cutting board and knife (for prep work)
A spatula or large, heat-resistant spoon
2 medium yellow squash, chopped (such as crookneck squash)
1 medium-large zucchini, chopped
1 small or half a large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbs olive oil

1. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat.
2. When oil is hot add garlic and onions. Saute until garlic begins to turn golden.
3. Add squash and zucchini. Saute until soft, around 10 minutes.
4. Add salt and pepper. Serve.

I have come to realize that not everyone loves garlic as much as me. If you’re not all that fond of garlic you might want to cut down the garlic cloves to one. If you love garlic as much as mean you might want to up it to three.
