This fast and easy side combines sautéed baby squash with scallions, shallots and parsley. It's a great way to showcase the vegetable's summer-fresh flavor.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 pounds baby squash, halved
  • 1 bunch scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 (large) shallot, finely chopped
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped

How to Make It
