Sauteed Summer Squash

Sauteed Summer Squash, originally uploaded by essgee51.
Still working my way through the previous weeks' market bounty. I got home pretty late last night and treated myself to a bubble bath after the gym, but also wanted to cook something quick and yummy. Solution? Saute squash in rich farmer's market butter with garlic and lots of salt and pepper. Hooray!
  • 3-4 T butter
  • 4 summer squash, sliced into 1/4-1/2 in. rounds
  • 2 T garlic, chopped
  • lots of salt and pepper
  • 1-2 T lemon juice
  • 1-2 T parsley, chopped, for garnish
Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes, till fragrant.

Add squash. Season with salt and pepper, and cook till squash reaches desired consistency, 5-10 minutes, turning now and then. (I covered the pan for a few minutes to get the steaming process underway and shrink everything more quickly.)

Remove from heat. Adjust seasoning. Pour lemon juice over squash and garnish with parsley before serving.
