Savory Summer Squash with Bacon

Recipe by  

"I love squash but wanted a new recipe with fewer calories. I did a search on flavorful ingredients and came up with a bunch of pasta recipes. So I thought, why not substitute yellow squash for pasta? And it worked! All the ingredients can be prepared in advance and refrigerated until ready to cook. Long, slender young squash make for the best texture."

Directions

  1. Place 2 paper towels on a microwave-safe plate; add bacon and top with another paper towel. Cook in microwave on high until some grease is absorbed, about 30 seconds.
  2. Transfer bacon to a deep skillet and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until crisp, 5 to 10 minutes. Lower heat to medium; stir garlic into bacon and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add onion; cook and stir until onion is slightly translucent and still firm, about 5 minutes.
  3. Mix squash into onion-bacon mixture; cook and stir until squash is slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add artichoke hearts; cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add capers and rosemary; cover skillet and cook, stirring often, until squash is softened but firm to the bite, about 5 more minutes. Season with salt and white pepper.

I spiral cut the squash instead of cutting into bite-size pieces but, otherwise, followed the recipe. Just a really nice side dish loaded with fresh flavors. Delish!

I made this to recipe except for reserving some of the bacon pieces for the top along with some freshly shredded Parmesan which I thought added not only to the presentation but to the flavor. This recipe was a little different take on the ordinary yellow squash and enjoyed it for a change. Thanks Katrinika for submitting this!

Was looking for a way to use up some of the squash from the garden.... for a very healthy meal and a twist from the normal squash recipes this was awesome!

Lovely way to shake up squash. The capers and artichoke hearts are so unexpected and so refreshing.
