I don't always have time to cook out on the grill. The common scenario is I fire up the grill, throw food on, it catches fire, we save what we can and have supper.
TWO INGREDIENTS BESIDES THE SQUASH!!!!! (Salt and pepper do not count as ingredients in Ruthy-world... so add them as needed!)
But for those times we actually want to eat, here's a great in-the-kitchen recipe that's to die for. Of course eggplant or zucchini could be substituted for the summer squash, and if you like tomato, a couple of quartered tomatoes can be thrown into the mix...
But for this one, it was squash and squash alone!
Cut the ends of two or three summer squash. Cut squash into pieces about 1/2 inch thick. If the wide end is too wide, cut pieces into quarters.
In large frying pan, pour a small splash of olive oil. Heat over medium/high temp/flame until oil is hot. Add summer squash. It should sizzle right away.
Sprinkle generously with a roasted garlic/herb seasoning mix or a black pepper blend seasoning mix or any seasoning mix you LOVE!
Stir around with spatula.... Let squash sizzle, then toss with spatula again. Don't overcook squash, it will get mushy. When squash is losing it's white look, layer top with a cup to a cup-and-a-half of 4-blend cheese or sharp cheese...
Turn off heat, cover and let cheese melt.
We've made this every day for the grown-ups working here.... And it's become a kid fave, too!
It just melts in your mouth, bursting with flavor and almost NO CARBS.... They say there are about 7 carbs in a whole squash, and there's one in the cheese... So 8 carbs of absolute deliciousness!
And here's what we've been doing this week:
Happy Ruthy!!!! :)
Except... my camera died today. It won't take pictures. SO SAD. My camera is my buddy, my friend. My cell phone has a great camera, but I don't have a clue how to easily upload those pics to the Internet....
I love my little Sony.
OH!!! BUT LOOKEEE, SEE!!! I ADDED A PIC FROM MY PHONE BY E-MAILING IT TO MYSELF.
Oh, Hallelujah chorus!!!!! :)
