Seasoned Summer Squash Sauté Side

Seasoned Summer Squash Sauté Side

Now that summer squashes and tomatoes are abundant in farmer's markets, backyard gardens, and in grocery stores, this fresh-tasting recipe is perfect for using up the produce and is over the top in goodness!

There are hundreds of varieties of summer squash, ranging from dark green to bright yellow, long to stubby, smooth to ridged to lumpy ~  from crookneck, to green and yellow and pattypan, to zucchini.

It’s a complicated family of veggies, and any one of them would be great for this recipe.  I used zucchini and crookneck summer squash, choose your favorites. 

Ready for tomatoes and mushrooms!

The squash was sautéed with garlic, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, seasoned with Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy, finishing with a little cheese melting over all.

This was simple, and delicious for dinner and just as tasty leftover at lunchtime the next day!
