  1. Preheat the grill for medium heat.
  2. Cut the squash horizontally into 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thick slices so that you have nice long strips that won't fall through the grill.
  3. Heat olive oil in a small pan, and add garlic cloves. Cook over medium heat until the garlic starts to sizzle and become fragrant. Brush the slices of squash with the garlic oil, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Grill squash slices for 5 to 10 minutes per side, until they reach the desired tenderness. Brush with additional garlic oil, and turn occasionally to prevent sticking or burning.

This was excellent. I cut up the squash and put it in foil and grilled it with the olive oil and garlic. It was easy to just flip the foil pack rather than each individual squash piece. Turned out excellent! Thanks for the great recipe.

Nothing spectacular. Was ok. I think the basic Italian dressing marinade tastes better.

I thought this was good and will use it again. I put the veggies in a grilling basket, after seasoning them. I found this easier, as I could just turn the entire basket rather than individual veggies. I also added additional veggies (onion and sweet potato). I used this as a side with grilled steaks. Delicious. I will use the receipe again.

I tried this recipe and it is really good, the oil baste is the best, plus I added some more seasoning to flavor it just a tad more.

Quick, easy and delicious, this is just as tasty prepared on an indoor grill. I used zucchini as well as yellow squash, which was a nice color contrast on the plate. While hubby prefers his as is, I like mine sprinkled with grated Parmesan.

OMGOODNESS!!!! This is absolutely wonderful. I was originally looking for a basic recipe to oven roast veggies and decided to try this. I cut the cloves of garlic in half lengthwise, fried them in the oil until fragrant, and then followed the recipe with the exception of using green beans and pre-steamed carrots along with the yellow squash. I put them in a casserole dish and continued to roast them in the oven until done. The end result is so incredible that my "I hate carrots and squash" 6 year old asked for more! The garlic lended a nutty flavor and the whole dish is simple yet amazing. DEFINITELY a keeper! Thank you for the soon to be staple in our house!

This recipe was simple and delicious. The only thing I changed was to add a bit of balsamic vinegar to the basting mixture. My husband even ate two slices and he hates squash.

We really enjoyed this squash. After removing from the grill I drizzled melted butter over it.
