    3-4 Medium Yellow Squash sliced about 1/4" thick
    3 Tbsp Smart Balance Buttery Spread
    1 Tsp. Kosher Salt
    1/4 Tsp Black Pepper


Slice 3-4 yellow squash (removing and discarding top and bottom) (about 2 cups). No need to peel-skin is good for you. In a medium saucepan filled 3/4 with water and brought to a boil. Place squash into boiling water, adding 1 tsp of Kosher Salt. Boil until tender 8-10 minutes. Drain thoroughly in a large strainer (pieces may fall through colander) using a hand masher to squeeze out excess water. Place back into saucepan and add butter. Use hand masher to break down like mashed potatoes. Sprinkle black pepper and serve. Very easy and quick side dish.
