This past weekend, one of my college friends was in town and we made dinner one of the nights they were here. We split a top sirloin steak cooked with a simple rub, along with some garlic infused squash. It's a really simple dish, but super delicious. By browning the garlic in oil before adding the squash, it infused the scent and subtle garlic flavor throughout. I hope you enjoy this recipe, it's quick, easy, and tasty!
Cook Time: 10 minutes
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic
salt and pepper
Rinse the zucchini and squash. Cut the ends off of the zucchini and the squash. Slice one edge of the zucchini length-wise so that you can set the cut side down and the zucchini will not roll around. The benefit of doing this is you can cut the squash into strips without it rolling around. Cut the zucchini length wise, about 1/8 inch thick. Do the same with the squash. Set both aside.
Preheat a saute pan over medium low heat. Mince the garlic, and add the oil and garlic to the pan. Cook until the garlic is slightly browned. Add the zucchini and squash, along with a dash of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until tender.
