Simple Sautéed Summer Fare

This is great as a side dish, all by itself, but you may prefer it over pasta. Don't be afraid to add other vegetables to the mix.


  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • Olive oil (the good stuff)
  • Fresh garlic (2-3 cloves) minced, or 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Green onions, sliced thinly
  • Mixed squash, sliced into 1/4 inch thick rounds (halve the larger zucchini before slicing)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh herbs if available


dish: side
season: summer

Steam cauliflower until barely tender and set aside. Sauté garlic in olive oil over medium heat until translucent. Add green onions and sauté briefly, then add squash. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder if needed. Sprinkle with chopped herbs. Continue cooking until squash is tender and done to your liking. Add in cauliflower and toss together.

Top with grated parmesan and serve over pasta.
