Total Time: 5 min.

Thinly sliced and lightly cooked is the perfect way to serve fresh summer squash.

Tip: If you have a mandolin slicer, you can use it in place of the vegetable peeler. Use a guard or slice-resistant glove to avoid slicing yourself.


  • 4 medium yellow squash (about 1½ lb.)
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup thinly vertically sliced red onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼-½ tsp. crushed red pepper
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup (1 oz.) shaved fresh Parmesan cheese


  1. Using a vegetable peeler, shave squash into ribbons to measure 5 cups. Discard seeds and core of squash.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add squash, onion, and garlic; cook until onion is tender, gently stirring occasionally (4 minutes). Remove from heat.
  3. Add salt, crushed red pepper, and black pepper, and toss gently to combine. Sprinkle with cheese.
