Recipe: Italian Style Yellow Squash

This is another dish that I almost feel bad calling a recipe. I remember the first time I had a dish similar to this was at my brothers wedding. I was a preteen and wasn't quite sure squash sounded very good.  I tried it and have this preparation ever since.  It is best in the summer when the squash are fresh but it can be done all year long.

Italian Style Yellow Squash
Serves: 4

2-4 yellow squash (depending on size)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 clove minced garlic

Directions: Slice squash in half lengthwise and then but into 1/4 inch half moon slices.  Make sure to cut pieces uniformly so they will cook evenly. Heat olive oil in large pan over medium high heat. Season squash with Italian seasoning, salt and cracked black pepper.  Put in heated pan with garlic and saute until slight color change and slightly softened.  Some pieces may brown slightly. Make sure to keep heat low enough to not burn garlic.  Also works great with zucchini and yellow squash mixed.
