Ingredients

1 lb. summer squash, green and yellow

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)

1 small red bell pepper, chopped

2 tbsp. basil

1 cup cherry tomatoes

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1/2 cup coarsely grated Parmesan cheese (2 tbsp. per serving)

Directions

Wash and trim ends of squash. Cut lengthwise and then cut horizontally in half-inch slices. Pieces should be bite-size (they’ll shrink when you cook them).

Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Sauté onion, pepper, and garlic. Add squash and stir, about 3 minutes until tender. Add basil and whole cherry tomatoes. Stir just until tomatoes are heated and ready to pop, about 2 to 3 minutes longer. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
