In a dinner pot, saute the onion and garlic in about 1/4 cup of the chicken
broth till translucent. Add remaining stock and all other ingredients,
except salt and pepper. Cover and cook over low heat till the squash is
tender. Salt and pepper to taste. Of course, you can add more oregano, or
whatever, to your taste. I prefer yellow squash, but zucchini should work
as well. To serve, you may need a slotted spoon if there is much liquid
