Summer Squash Sauté This recipe takes about 10 minutes to cook, once you’ve cut all your vegetables. It’s a good dish to top pasta or serve with grilled chicken, lean beef, or salmon. Ingredients 1 lb. summer squash, green and yellow 2 tbsp. olive oil 1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup) 1 small red bell pepper, chopped 2 tbsp. basil 1 cup cherry tomatoes 2 cloves garlic, chopped 1/2 cup coarsely grated Parmesan cheese (2 tbsp. per serving) Directions Wash and trim ends of squash. Cut lengthwise and then cut horizontally in half-inch slices. Pieces should be bite-size (they’ll shrink when you cook them). Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Sauté onion, pepper, and garlic. Add squash and stir, about 3 minutes until tender. Add basil and whole cherry tomatoes. Stir just until tomatoes are heated and ready to pop, about 2 to 3 minutes longer. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
