Yellow Squash anyone?

I've become a huge fan of zucchini -- and spaghetti squash recently....  Tonight was my first time cooking yellow squash.  I asked my mom how to prepare it and I used her idea exactly... It's nothing revolutionary - nothing new.... But I'm posting it here to hopefully share something maybe some others hadn't thought about as a healthy side dish option for dinner.  This is so low cal, I'm going to have to start eating it more often!! Not only low cal, it's super tasty too! Win-Win!

2 medium Yellow Squash - I sliced and then cut slices into quarters.
a few onion rings - roughly sliced.
Sea salt & pepper
emeril's original essence
nonstick cooking spray
Heat skillet/frying pan over med-high heat.  Spray with non stick cooking spray.  Add onions, salt & pepper -- cook for 2-3 minutes - until tender, then add in squash.  Spray with cooking spray, and sprinkle with Emeril's Original Essence.  Cook until tender.

This makes 2 large servings or 4 smaller servings -- so low cal, go ahead, have a large serving!!  Nutrition information is for the entire recipe, so divide by two for two larger servings, or by 4 for four smaller servings.

  1. I personally love squash simply steamed - but I've never had it with a dash of Emeril's...I'll have to try it! The only way I like more than this is grilling it on the barbeque in the summer - delicious!

  2. You know I love squash. This looks delic!
