Yellow Squash and Tomatoes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.


4 servings

Kathy Smith of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania writes of her Yellow Squash and Tomatoes, “Don't be fooled by the simplicity; this is so good. I made it at least once a week last summer when the garden was producing squash, tomatoes and basil.”


  • 2 medium yellow summer squash, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 16 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large skillet, saute squash in oil until tender. Add the tomatoes, basil, pepper and salt. Reduce heat to medium; cook 1-2 minutes longer or until heated through.

    Wow! I was looking for something I could make with my garden vegetables, and this popped up! This is amazing as a side dish.

    I think 2T of oil is a bit much - the dish was oily even after letting it saute a bit longer than I normally would. That being said, I thought it was DELICIOUS and would love to try it with cubes of mozzarella in it (like a bruschetta). Perfect summer grilled meal companion!

    Delicious! I have an abundance of yellow squash and basil in my garden and so I thought I would try this. I absolutely loved this but my kids wouldn't touch it. My husband doesn't care for squash so I got to devour this by myself. In more than one sitting of course. It tastes just as good heated up the next day! Thank you for sharing!

    I have made this recipe and will be making it tonight. My husband and son like it and asked for it again and they are not veggie lovers.
