This is a new “family recipe” that our son actually discovered.  While in Central Market with some friends, they sampled this dish and thought it was delicious.  So…he brought home the recipe card and you can imagine, as most moms would do, I bought some squash and made the recipe.  We all loved it, and I’ve made it a couple of times.  I even made it when we went to visit my mother-in-law.  It is definitely on our family favorites list!


  • 1 pound yellow squash, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup chopped onion  (I added this because I always cook squash with onion)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • Fresh lemon juice  (1/4 – 1/2 small lemon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • Salt & Pepper


Sauté the squash and onion in olive oil and melted butter.  When it’s just starting to get tender, squeeze fresh lemon juice over it.  Then season to taste with thyme, salt & pepper.  You can vary the seasonings for a slight lemon flavor or a stronger flavor.  Same with the thyme.
