- 3 yellow squash, cubed
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cubed
- 1 tablespoon dried basil leaves
- salt to taste
- In a glass serving dish, combine the squash pieces and garlic. Season with salt, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 5 to 8 minutes on high, or until tender. Stir after every 3 to 4 minutes.
- Sprinkle the cream cheese over the top, and return to the microwave, uncovered for about 1 minute, or until the cheese is melted. Stir until the cheese is smooth and blended into the squash. Let set for a minute or two before serving.
