Amy's Summer Squash
30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
8 ingredients
4 servings
I stood in my friends kitchen and watched (with dismay) as she cooked a dish of summer squash for us to eat. At the time, I didn't like squash. This recipe converted me. I love it now! I make this with a combination of yellow and green summer squash. For non-squash eaters, it is good with the pale green variety sold as "calbeza" since it is milder in flavor. We use pepper jack cheese, but it is also good with sharp cheddar. If I make it with extra cheese, my preschooler will eat it without complaint.
