Sautéed Squash with Pesto and Parmesan

There was a sale on summer squash this week and I searched for some new recipes to try. In all honesty squash (and zucchini) are not my favorite but I like to have a variety of vegetables in my diet. I found several recipes that sounded interesting and this the first. It is adapted from a recipe on Kalyn's Kitchen (which you should check out - lots of deliciousness there).

adapted from Sautéed Zucchini with Spinach and Basil Pesto on Kalyn's Kitchen

3-4 medium summer squash or zucchini (or a combo of both)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 clove of garlic, minced or pressed
salt & pepper
1/4 cup prepared pesto
Parmesan cheese

Rinse squash and pat dry. Cut off ends and slice into 1/2-inch slices. Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add sliced squash and stir to evenly coat with oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until crisp-tender (or to personal preference), stirring frequently. Add pesto and stir to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
