“My mom threw this together the last time I was at her house and I loved it. I didn't get her exact recipe, but I did my best to recreate it. This is a great, easy recipe for a fresh summer squash crop! I sometimes use a large onion instead of a small one. The onion really soaks up a lot of flavor when it cooks and I absolutely love it. Of course, I really like onion a lot. If you like onions a lot, I recommend using more than called for.”
