I love squash in all it's forms and I love cheese. This combines both for extremely satisfying results. Great by itself or with rice.
squash (patty pan, summer, zucchini, whatever you got)
Chop up your onion and garlic (I use a 1:1 ratio, so half an onion, half a head of garlic, they're aromatics, do what tastes right)
thinly slice your squash - good place to break out the mandolin if you have one.
start to saute the onion in a little olive oil and add the garlic after a few minutes. Once the onion is translucent, throw in the squash and mix it all up. let saute for ~5 minutes and add the thyme. give it a few more minutes, until the thyme is aromatic. serve it up with some of the water the veggies released; mix with pecorino to taste and add pepper if you want. You'll end up with what feels like an ultra-creamy veggie dish, but without a gazillion calories. The pecorino melts and gives you salt, cream and a bit of a bite. Rice or hot sauce optional.
