What I Did to the Squash (AKA Confessions of a Satisfied Cook)

Finely slice a couple of onions and start to sauté them in about a tablespoon of butter. Squish a couple of garlic cloves through a garlic press, add them to the onions and let them cook on a low heat while you prepare the rest of the vegetables. As each vegetable is prepared, add it to the skillet as well.

3-4 tablespoons green pepper
1 medium summer squash, quartered lengthwise and sliced very thin
2 medium tomatoes, chopped

Sprinkle over the vegetables:
Freshly ground salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon each dried basil and oregano
1/4-1/3 cup Parmesan cheese (more or less, to taste)

Allow this to simmer until the squash is tender, maybe 10 minutes. Very tasty. My husband barbecued burgers to go with it and he said it was the best meal he had ever had!
