  1. Fill a saucepan with water, bring it to a boil, and boil the ears of corn until partially cooked, about 3 minutes. Plunge the ears of corn into ice water to chill, then cut the kernels off the cobs into a bowl.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet with a lid over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion until translucent and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in the corn; cook and stir until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the zucchini and yellow squash slices, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the squash are tender and the liquid from the vegetables is cooked away, about 8 minutes.
  3. Remove the lid, season the vegetables with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Place the lid back on the skillet, and turn off the heat. Allow the cheese to melt, and serve hot.

This was very good! We are on diet so we skipped the cheese.

Absolutely wonderful. My family gave it 5 stars, too. I didn't change a thing except I omitted the cheese. I will be making this often.

Its good, light and nutritious. I gave it 4 because the cheese takes away from the flavor. All in all, delicious

Absolutely delicious! I gave 4 out of 5 stars because the cook time was off. I ended up with too much liquid, but the corn, squash, and zucchini came directly out of the garden that morning, s...
