The refrigerator light goes on...

These are two perfect ingredients that make a wonderful dish. The yellow squash tastes like summer and its own buttery flavor is enhanced by the parmesan. I especially like using just a little bit of rosemary for the herb.

Parmesan Squash recipe from Dr. Gourmet


  • 2 8-ounce yellow squash
  • 2 lbs water
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp fresh herbs of your choice
  • 1 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano (grated)

Place the water in a medium pot fitted with a steamer basket over high heat.

Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Cut about 1/4 inch from the stem end of the squash and then slice lengthwise. Place the four halves in the steamer and steam until slightly tender.

Remove the steamed squash and place in a shallow baking dish. Place the dish in the oven and cook for about 10 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with pepper, fresh herbs and equal amounts of Parmigiano-reggiano.

Return the pan to the oven and cook until the parmesan is melted (about 5 minutes).
