Savory Summer Squash with Bacon

Rated as 4.46 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  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!

It was ok, but the bacon came out soggy. I wonder if it also would have been better with spaghetti squash.

Everyone loved it on the 4th of July. I only dotted the top with the capers. Added quartered cherry tomatoes all over the top to add color. One person commented the tomatoes added to the flav...

Used seasoned fennel sausage instead of bacon.

I had pancetta so i used that instead of bacon. It was delicious. I felt the cooking times were a little off as the squash got pretty squishy after cooking even for a minute. I did put parm on t...

Absolutely loved this recipe.

I substituted Pancetta (chopped) for the bacon and shredded the squash. It was excellent. I use this as a pseudo hash with an egg on top as a breakfast dish. I definitely make it again.

This was fantastic. The only change I made was using zucchini as it was on sale this week. Could eat it every day.

excellent and easy to make
