My mom loved to cook. She also loved summertime and was an avid gardener. She would always have a HUGE garden every year and maintain it meticulously. One of her best loved recipes, fresh from the garden, was her summer saute of green zucchini and yellow summer squash.
1 T extra virgin olive oil
2 T unsalted butter
2 medium sized green zucchini squash, sliced
2 small-medium yellow summer squash, sliced
1 green bell pepper, chopped (slightly larger pieces)
1 small onion, chopped
1-2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1/4 tsp dried basil or 1/2 tsp fresh, chopped fine
Fresh ground black pepper
Saute vegetables over medium heat for about 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently, until they are tender, but not mushy. Enjoy!
