Baby Squash Medley

If you have a garden, you probably grow squash.  But you probably don't pick them this little.  But you should.  They are so tender and delicious.  This is a mixture of patty pan squash, zuchinni, and scallopini.  You can boil them whole when they're this little, too and they're delicious.
In a saute pan, heat some olive oil.  Add a diced onion.  Put the squash in and saute  the squash and onion together until tender.  It doesn't take very long- just 5-10 minutes.  Add some dried basil (maybe a teaspoon or two) OR  basil pesto (can be store bought.  I freeze it in ziplock bags, then break off a chunk and put in with the squash) and a handful of parmesan cheese.  Stir well and serve when cheese is melted. This is a yummy and healthy sidedish.
