One thing about living along the river is the abundance of everyone’s gardens. Since we got such a late start on our garden, the surrounding neighbors have been most generous with their bounty bringing us summer squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, string beans and more!
I decided to do a quick sauté with squash and tomato. Here is the recipe:
1-2 garlic cloves diced
Summers squash cut in 1 inch chunks (you can pre cook the squash in simmering water if you like it a little soft)
I large tomato sliced thick
Shredded cheese of your choice ( I used shredded cheddar and torn slice of provolone)
Dried Italian seasonings
Fresh ground black pepper
In a medium saute pan, heat the oil over a medium flame. Add the garlic and sauté till you can start to smell the aroma. Add the squash and stir lightly until tender then add tomato slices. Season with the dried Italian seasoning, black pepper and sea salt to taste. Cover and set heat to simmer until tomtaoes cook down a bit. turn off the flame, sprinkle the top with cheese and cover to let the cheese melt. Your dish is ready to serve!
