Basil Summer Squash

Recipe from

Southern Living


1/4 cup chicken broth
1 pound pattypan or 'Peter Pan' squash, cut in half*
1 small Vidalia onion, chopped
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 tablespoon sugar
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Creole seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil


Bring broth to a boil in a large skillet. Reduce heat to low; add squash and next 5 ingredients. Cook, covered, 10 to 12 minutes or until squash is tender and liquid evaporates. Stir in salt, pepper, and basil.

*2 pounds yellow squash may be substituted for either pattypan or Peter Pan squash. Reduce the cooking time by 2 minutes.
