Seared Summer Squash Recipe

Easy and quick to make dish for summer squashes or zucchini. I actually used both to make this dish looking more festive.

I believe it is also light, especially if amount of oil used is reduced to minimum, squashes are actually being cooked in their own juices.

Seared squashes can be served as a dish on its own or as a side dish for a meat main course.
