Sautéed Summer Squash Recipe

What can't we do with our summer squash?! Here's a great side that also works well as filling for a frittata.


2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

½ medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup chopped)

2 plump garlic cloves, minced

1 ½ pounds summer squash, cut in 1/2-inch dice

1 small red pepper, cut in 1/4-inch dice

Salt and freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat and add the onion. Cook, stirring often, until tender, 5 to 8 minutes, and add the garlic, summer squash, red pepper, and about 3/4 teaspoon salt. Turn the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring, until the squash is translucent and the red pepper tender, about 10 minutes. Add freshly ground pepper, taste and adjust salt. Stir in the parsley and remove from the heat. Serve as a side dish, or use as a filling for a vegetable tart, gratin, or frittata.
