One of my favorite dishes my mother made when I was a kid was a simple sauté of lovely yellow summer squash. She would just cut the squash into little discs, cook them with some onions and within minutes we had a simple side dish that was full of flavor. To give my take on her recipe a little more oomph, I caramelize the onions first and occasionally sprinkle on a bit of Parmesan cheese to give the flavor even more richness and depth. When squash is in season, I quadruple this recipe, yes quadruple it, just so I can enjoy it as a snack during the day. It's not exactly pretzels or potato chips, but to me it's equally addictive. I was eating a bowl of it cold yesterday and Chloe was asking me for forkful after forkful until my bowl was bare. A cinch to make and straightforward delish, try making some this summer for your gang!
