Sauteed Squash and Onions

I grew up eating squash and onions. It was a summer favorite of our family. I converted the bacon grease version my mom made to the Med Way by using olive oil. I use both zucchini and yellow squash but you can use just one variety if you like. This recipe calls for green onions, but white onions will work as well. You can make this ahead of time and heat up what you need in a sauté pan.
