Summer Squash Toss

It's actually more like a Fall squash toss for us! We are officially done with summer. :( There's a chill to air, the leaves are turning colors and some fresh snow on the mountains up the valley. And the wonderful wind storm last night only helped push us into fall. Winds were up to like 40-60 mpg, more in some places. It sounds like all of Anchorage, Eagle River & Chugiak lost power for some amount of time! 

Summer Squash Toss

1lb pasta, cooked
1 med. zucchine, sliced & halved
1 sm. yellow summer squash, sliced & halved
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tsp. garlic
2 tsp. oregano or italian seasoning
Parmesan cheese

Heat oil in a shallow frying pan. Add garlic and oregano and simmer until garlic is golden. Add zucchini, summer squash and mushrooms to the pan. Cook until desired doneness. Pour squash mixture over pasta, toss, sprinkle cheese over the top and serve. 

I didn't have any garlic, so I did 2 tsp. oregano and 2 tsp. italian seasoning, to give it enough flavor. 


It was a delicious side dish. I paired it with breaded baked chicken and garlic bread.
