What is Yellow Squash?

I always call it yellow zucchini, because it is about the same size. But there is a difference between zucchini and yellow squash. Yellow squash, also called summer squash, has a slightly different shape and can have a fat bottom. 

Summer squash has an edible skin that becomes tender when cooked.

How to Cook Yellow Squash

Yellow squash must not be overcooked, so I watch it closely when I cook it. You want to boil it until the inside of the squash just starts to turn from white to slightly translucent.

Yellow squash is full of water, so if it is overcooked, it becomes soggy and falls apart easily.
