Quick & Easy Crookneck Squash


Last week I posted this sauteed swiss chard recipe because I decided sharing some of my super easy and quick ways to cook up basic vegetables would be fun, rather than always sharing special cake recipes and complicated dishes.

These are the recipes I make every single day (depending on the season), usually for dinner. They usually take no more than fifteen minutes and are baby approved (then again my child eats most everything when he's in the mood). 

It's almost fall, so naturally, squash are popping up in the garden. My husband picked our very first one the other day and I decided to sauté it.

Ingredients:

• 1 crookneck squash
• Half an onion (sliced into long slivers, rather than chopped)
• Olive Oil
• Salt
• Pepper
• Oregano

Directions:

• Pour olive oil into sauce pan, let sit on medium heat while you slice your onions.
• Toss onions into frying pan, let simmer while you chop your squash (refer to image below to see how I chopped mine). You can cut them virtually any way you like (chunks, wedges, long strips, etc.) I decided to go with short, French fry-esque strips for extra baby approved-ness.
• Toss your chopped squash into the olive oil, onion combination. Lightly toss with wooden spoon as it all cooks.
• Season with salt, pepper and oregano. Optional parsley garnishing if desired.


Bon Appetit!
