Squash, Peppers, and Onions


My mom recently gave me some squash that she grew in her vegetable garden.  I was grateful but… I had no idea what to do with it! Believe it or not, I’ve never made or even eaten squash before. Well, I assume I had it when I was a little girl but I don’t remember. If I did, I must not have liked it because I’ve never had the desire to eat it.

I looked up a few recipes and asked for help on my cooking board.  There were some great casserole suggestions and someone mentioned grilling or roasting them.  Then someone said, “Make it like you make your cabbage!” Well, that sounded easy enough for my first time. I planned to make it with onions and then my mom suggested green peppers as well.  So, I thinly sliced the squash and sauteed it over medium heat in a little olive oil with sliced green peppers and onions.  I seasoned it with kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder, and marjoram.  And I liked it! Hey mom- I ate my squash! 🙂 DSCN0828
