This is one of my favorite sides dishes. It's something I made up and I don't really measure, so these measurements are my best guesses. Use more or less of anything as you see fit.

Easy Summer Squash

6-8 small summer squash, assorted colors and kinds
1 Tbsp bacon drippings or butter
1/4 cup chicken broth
kosher salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup cheddar cheese
sprinkle of Parmesan cheese

Melt bacon drippings in saute pan. Meanwhile, wash and dry squash, then slice into rounds. Add to hot drippings. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Saute for five minutes. Add a splash of chicken broth and continue cooking for two or three minutes. Allow most of the chicken broth to be absorbed or cook off. Turn off heat. Sprinkle on cheddar and Parmesan and allow to melt. Serve hot.

You could also cook the squash in an ovenproof skillet and finish it in the oven if that fits better with your main dish.
