A healthier squash recipe!

As gardens are bounteous with endless varieties of squash, I wanted to get creative with my recipes for the delicious veggie!

I often create new recipes by simply having scarce items in my pantry.  Almost every one of my new recipes grows from a "hmmm, I wonder what it would taste like if..." thought.  Rarely are these experiments planned, and not all of them end well.  Just ask Dan about the time I tried to salvage old and half-used candles in our newlywed kitchen.  That experiment ended with a "calm, cool, and collected" call to his work asking the best way to put out a kitchen fire.  Oh, and Ladies, NEVER start a conversation that way.  Learn from my mistake.

But I digress...

Let's get down to the how-to of this delicious and simple squash dish.  Who doesn't love a recipe with THREE-ISH ingredients? I say "ish," because I don't think "salt to taste" counts.

So, here goes!

Ingredients:
5 medium sized yellow squash, sliced sort of thinly.
4 tbsp butter (only use the REAL stuff, for your health!)
Basil paste (you can make this from fresh basil and oil)

Directions: 
Sauté slices of squash in the butter which has partially melted in a wrought iron skillet on medium-high heat.  When they start to be transparent in some places, stir in about 1 tbsp basil paste and salt to taste.  That's it!!

DOES IT GET any easier than that?!  No! It doesn't!

I think you'll love it.  We did! But let me know your opinions! :)

Happy Cooking!
