Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-2 yellow summer squash sliced
  • 1-2 zucchini squash sliced
  • 1/2 an onion sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder or 2 cloves, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • a dash of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella or Parmesan optional

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, melt the butter. Then add your squash, zucchini, onions, and spices.
  • Cover and continue cooking over medium heat for 10-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the squash is soft and cooked through.
  • Remove from heat. If you're using cheese, sprinkle it on now so it will melt nicely.
  • Serve immediately
