Sauteed Squash

Sauteed Squash makes a delicious side dish recipe. Ready in mines, this is a favorite of squash recipes!

Sauteed squash is one my go-to side dishes all year long, but especially now as my garden is giving me an abundance of the cute little yellow sweethearts in a steady stream right about now. Each day I picked all the squash that needs to be picked only to go back the next day to find just as many, if not more. To say we’ve been blessed in squash is quiet an understatement, but I’m certainly thankful for them since everyone in my family enjoys squash so much.

Sauteed squash can be ready in minutes and is the perfect side dish for any number of supper menus – chicken, steak, pork, you name it. Squash just works well and this recipe really couldn’t be much easier.

Here’s how I make my Sauteed Squash recipe.
