Fun With Foil

While watching Martha Stewart's cooking show with my mom, I vowed to try cooking with foil packs more often. I've always found that cooking things in foil packs really seals in the flavors, and it's a really simple way of cooking. As a side dish the other night, I decided to try making some yellow squash in a foil pack, and it came out delicious!

To make this super simple squash foil pack, you will need
1 yellow squash chopped
4 cloves of garlic cut into quarters
1 small lemon cut into rings
1 large piece of tinfoil

To prepare, preheat your oven to 400 and arrange your chopped squash in an even layer in your foil. Then, scatter your garlic and lemon rings evenly throughout the foil and seal up the packet. Cook on a baking sheet for about 20 minutes, or until the zucchini has softened. After the zucchini has softened, remove the pack from the oven and transfer to a bowl for serving. You can even eat the garlic, which is now roasted and delicious!

Feelin' Frisky? This technique can work for any veggies that you want. Feel free to mix it up and add carrots, asparagus, brussels sprouts, etc.
