      Hehe I had to look back to basic strategy and they don't tell you you should always fold QQ!

      From this article:

      "What if someone raises behind you?

      .
      .
      .

      YOU HAVE A POCKET PAIR

      You can consider making a call with pocket pairs other than AA or KK if you and your opponent both have at least 20 times the raise left in your stacks.

      As with the Call20 rule, you are speculating on hitting a set on the flop. If you do, you have good chances at winning your opponent's entire stack.

      THE OPPONENT MAKES A MINIMUM RAISE

      You will often find players making minimum raises at lower limit games. Whatever reasons they might have, there is little sense in making such a move. If you have already entered the hand and someone makes a minimum raise, you call, unless you have AA or KK, in which case you reraise."


      So you made a mistake there, you should have called even with 22 :P , and with QQ here I think I'd have reraised trying to be HU on the flop.
