Step by step how-to prepare and cook yellow squash:
Begin by choosing small to medium squash – these are usually very tender. (If all you have is large squash, just chop into smaller pieces and you should be good to go.) No need to peel yellow squash, simply rinse the squash well under cool water. You may peel any skin that shows dark places or blemishes.
Next, chop the yellow squash into pieces to make it easier to cook. Discard the brown top.
Get your skillet ready by adding olive oil and warming on medium. Add squash and chopped onion to skillet and allow to cook undisturbed until brown then flip to cook other side.
As you cook, add salt and pepper to taste.
