Summer squash and zucchini are abundant in gardens right now. They can be turned into a quick side dish for dinner by using the microwave. It only takes 10 to 15 minutes, start to finish.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 zuchini, cut into slices
1 yellow summer squash, cut into slices
oregano, dried or fresh – to taste
salt and pepper
2 Tbs. olive oil
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (a better quality shredded is better, but I was out so I used the Walmart brand grated)
Toss the squash and zucchini slices with the other ingredients. Sometimes I add tomatoes too. Microwave on high for about 4-6 minutes, or until tender.
That’s it. Easy, quick and healthy.
