When you choose yellow squash for this dish they can be a medium
size, and if they are very young you need not peel them. I call a
medium squash one that is about 8" long.
2 - 3 med. sized Yellow Squash halved and sliced (about 3/8"
1/4 stick of real butter
1/2 Med onion chopped
1/2 cup of chopped sausage (any kind) I like homemade.
Salt & pepper to taste
Sauté' onion and sausage in butter until onion is clear. Add
squash and 1/8 cup of water and
sprinkle salt and pepper. Cover and cook on a med-low fire until
squash is nice and tender (about 15-20 minutes). Taste and add
seasoning as needed.
Note: Use just enough water to get a steam going. The
squash will give off some water as they cook. You don't really want
the dish too watery.
Really tough dish huh?
You can make big batches of this and freeze it. It'll keep about
3 months in the freezer.
