This is a different angle on an old veggie. Even the kids will eat this one! If you've got fresh dill in your garden, substitute 2 to 3 fresh sprigs dill for the dried dill weed.

While I wouldn't call this "a different angle on an old veggie" as the submitter describes, it doesn't take away from the fact that this is just plain simple and good. No need to measure, just saute the squash in butter as needed, add salt, pepper and dill to your taste. I cooked this, however, at medium-high heat, not the medium-low as the recipe directs. Saute as long as necessary to achieve a crisp-tender doneness, not till it's soggy and mushy, which can easily happen with summer squash. Great fresh flavors with just a few simple ingredients - what's not to like?

Great taste. I made the following changes: 2 garlic cloves (minced) sauted w/ the zucchini & squash, 1.5 tsp dill, cut back on butter & used some olive oil instead

This is a versatile recipe. You can change it anyway you like. I used fresh lemon for the lemon juice and did it give it a kick. Also, I used fresh dill weed. During the summer months I will vary it some more. Experiment - it's fun!
