Summer Squash Saute




Yield 5 cups

A delicious and easy meal for summer time produce.



  1. Heat medium saucepan over medium heat until warm. Add onion and saute for 2 minutes. (Use this method to saute without oil OR saute in 1 tablespoon of oil.)
  2. Stir in minced garlic and saute for an additional minute.
  3. Stir in zucchini, summer squash, and seasonings and stir to combine. Cover and reduce heat to just over low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 14 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp.
  4. Increase heat to medium. Stir in beans and tomatoes. Cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in Creamy Italian Dressing if using.

Serve hot with crusty bread or over pasta or rice.


The amount of time needed to saute the summer squash will depend on how mature the squash is, how much liquid is in the squash, and how hot your stove is.

If the tomatoes are really seedy, you might want to remove some of the seeds.
