“Vegetables are interesting but lack a sense of purpose when unaccompanied by a good cut of meat.” Fran Lebowitz

In NE Texas we often refer to Yellow Squash as Summer Squash.  I really never cared for it until my wife taught me this simple recipe that provides for a delicious side dish.  It is rich in fiber and very low cal and low fat.





Step by step method

  • 1

    Preheat oven to 400 F.  Assemble the ingredients. Wash the squash and place it on a carving board. Remove about a half inch from each end and then slice it lengthwise down the middle keeping each side about the same thickness.

  • 2

    Holding each piece in your hand, lightly spread the butter over the piece using a dinner knife. Place the buttered pieces on a foil-lined baking pan or in a glass baking dish. Lightly sprinkle with the garlic powder and then top each piece with the grated cheese. Pepper to taste.

  • 3

    Bake for 25-30 minutes until the cheese is slightly brown and a fork indicates the meat is soft. Serve hot.
