Squash Sense..... Really Simple Skillet Recipes

As promised, here are a few more recipes using summer squash.  Enjoy.......and let me know if you try any of these recipes and how they turned out......

Summer Squash in a Skillet

6 large summer squash, sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 -2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Slice squash in medium slices. In large iron skillet heat the olive oil;  add the squash and onions in layers, sprinkling salt and pepper between layers. Cover and cook over low heat. When squash starts to become tender, mix gently and chop the squash a bit as you mix, but not a lot. Cook until squash is tender, about 20 minutes or so.

It really doesn't get any easier than this :)

Zucchini Tomato Skillet

1/2 cup sliced green onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small bay leaf
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 lbs zucchini, unpeeled, sliced 1/2 " thick
3 fresh tomatoes, peeled and each cut into 8 wedges

 Cook onion and garlic in oil until onion is tender. Add sugar, bay leaf, salt, pepper, and zucchini. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes; heat through. Remove bay leaf before serving.  You can toss into hot cooked pasta as a quick delicious meal. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and enjoy!

And this is my Daily Cyn............
