Notes

  • Any type of summer squash can be substituted for the zucchini: yellow squash, yellow zucchini, pattypan, and zephyr are just a few.
  • Feel free to add a clove or two of minced garlic to the pan or a dash of garlic powder at the end.
  • When your garden is overrun with zucchini, this is a nice way to use up some of Summer’s bounty.
