Squash Stir Fry


1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 large clove garlic, sliced or chopped
2 medium green zucchini, sliced in 1/2 rounds
1 medium yellow (crookneck) squash, sliced in 1/2 rounds
1 medium tomato chopped
Italian seasoning or oregano or thyme (your preference)
Salt and pepper to taste

Add oil to pan, cook onion and garlic for 2 minutes. Add zucchini and herbs, stir to coat evenly.  Cook 8-10 minutes until squash is soft.  Stir in tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, cook 2 minutes.  Serve hot.

TIP! When I have a large batch of zucchini, I prebag the cut squash, onion and garlic into dinner-sized portions and freeze in Ziploc bags. Later, defrost and add the remaining ingredients for a quick side dish, soup vegetable packet or pasta topper.
