    This turned out good.

    In a small frying pan melt a small amount of butter.

    Cut half of a small onion into a fine dice.

    Thinly slice 3 or 4 mushrooms.

    Cook til the onions are clear.

    Add 3 or 4 small yellow squash sliced thin.

    Put in 1/4 cup of water.

    Put on a lid and let cook til done.

    Stir to mix flavors.

    I like to mix equal parts green and yellow squashes.

    Sliced zucchini, sliced small yellow gourd, sliced fresh garlic, and sliced white onion. Throw both squashes in with garlic olive oil and sautee. Add in onion after a few minutes. Sprinkle on your favorite Italian spice blend w/salt-to-taste. Add mushrooms if you like, but not until the sqash gets close to being done. Yum!

    youll get much better texture,color and flavor if you cook without the lid or the added water. try it i bet youll enjoy. sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on it for kicks also.

    Squash cooked this way is my FAVORITE side dish. I do agree about not using the lid or extra water though. I love to cook this when I have the time. I usually let it simmer about 1.5 to 2 hours. All the extra ingredients mentioned above are great. I usually use only butter for liquid, no water. Once the squash start releasing its own liquid that is enough along with the butter.

    True, but it won't have the flavor of one without added water, and that has been slow simmered!
