salt & pepper
8 tablespoons of olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 medium red onion, sliced paper thin
1 clove of garlic, sliced paper thin
handful of fresh oregano
pinch of red chili flakes

Season the squash with 4 tablespoons of olive oil, salt & pepper. Lay squash in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
Bake about 20 minutes, until tender.
Mix 4 tablespoons olive oil, vinegar, onion, garlic, herbs, chili flakes and salt & pepper - creating a marinade.
Remove the squash once tender and pour marinade over hot squash.
Allow to cool for 20 minutes in the marinade, sprinkle with fresh mint and serve.
