This is a nice way to prepare squash. I reduced the butter to 2 tsp and added a little more onion and a clove of garlic to the cooking water during the last 4 minutes of boiling. I would reduce the milk next time to about 1/8 cup. I used 1.5 lb of yellow squash.

This is great if you like yellow squash. I make it a little differently though. I grate the squash in my food processor (this way I don't have to mash it after it is cooked) and then put it and the onion in a casserole dish with the lid on and stick it in the microwave. I have a fresh vegetable button on my microwave so I just use that twice. After the second time, I take the squash out, drain it and add the rest of the ingredients. I only use 1/4 cup of milk though, or it is too liquid for my taste.


Quick to prepare and Good! Sliced 1/2" and boiled the larger slices 3 minutes, then added smaller pieces and continued boiling for 5 minutes. Mashed slightly. Watch squash closely after adding milk. Creamy and a nice subtle flavor. Hubby said it was the best squash recipe he'd ever eaten!
