Quick Italian-Style Squash & Zucchini

It’s Monday again.  The weekend flew by, and now you’re staring into your refrigerator, wondering what happened to all the food.  And you SO don’t feel like cooking.  Well, fear not.  You can still eat a good meal without having to convince your legs to hold you upright for too much longer today.


Quick Italian-Style Squash and Zucchini

  • 1 medium Summer squash
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 10 (or so) cherry tomatoes
  • 5 (or so) basil leaves
  • 3-4 tablespoons of butter
  • salt, pepper, onion & garlic powders
  • Finely grated Parmesan cheese, optional

Dice up your squash, zucchini, and tomatoes into small pieces.  Combine in a microwave-safe bowl.  Add butter and seasoning.  How much and which kinds of seasoning is up to you, really.  I like the ones I listed, but you can do your own thing, too.  Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, or until all veggies are soft.  Meanwhile, finely chop your basil leaves.  Once the veggies are done, toss in the basil and stir in Parmesan to taste.

Boom.  Grill up whatever protein you have on hand, nuke some corn for 5-7 minutes in the husk, serve on a paper plate.  You are D-O-N-E done.  Here’s to Friday….
