1/2 Onionchopped, I use Vidalia if I can get them otherwise a white onion will do.
1Tbspbacon greaseoptional (I left it out this time)
Salt, Pepperto taste
Place squash and onion in skillet. If you are using bacon grease add it now. You can also add the garlic here too then about 1 cup of water, just enough to cover bottom of pan and bring to a gentle boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cover, simmering for about ten minutes or until squash and onions are translucent. Strain out of the pan and salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.
Place squash and onion in microwave safe bowl. Add water (garlic and a bit of bacon grease, remember these 2 are optional). Cover and microwave on high three to four minutes, or until translucent. Drain water and salt and pepper to taste.
