Summer Squash Mediterranean Style

Nor D.


I put this together a few years back. I make this as a side dish in the Summer quite often. It is flavorful and my family loves it. This is for the person who doesn't like Zucchini and tomatoes. Personally I prefer my Zucchini this way. Enjoy!

How to Make Summer Squash Mediterranean Style


  1. Cook garlic in a pan with 1 tsp olive oil. It takes about 30 seconds in a hot pan. Do not over brown it. Just cook until it starts to brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Add the butter and olive oil to pan. Mix together until melted. Add all vegetables to pan.
  3. Cook on med. high high heat. Keep stirring constantly folding veggies from bottom to top. After 5 minutes. Add the seasonings. Stir to combine.
  4. Cook until onions are nicely camelozed and Zucchini is cooked but not mush. Stir in cooked garlic.
  5. After it is cooked. Add more of the same seasonings if desired. I usually add more salt and basil. Taste it and decide for your self. ( it depends on the size of zucchin used etc. )
  6. Sprinkle parmesean cheese over vegetable mixture. Stir well to combine. Keep folding veggies on heat. After 3 minutes or so ready to serve.
