My husband returned from the Farmers Market with a pile of produce, including Patty Pan Squash, which I had never cooked before. I looked up recipes, which all sounded fabulous, but settled on the one loaded with cheese and bacon.


stuffed patty pan squash

6 patty pan squash

6 slices bacon, cooked and chopped

1/2 cup onion, diced

1 garlic clove

1/4 cup parmesan cheese

salt and pepper

Heat oven to 350F. Bring an inch of water to a boil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add squash, cover and cook for 10 minutes.

Drain and slice off the top stem of the squash. Scoop out the centers of the squash and reserve (I discarded the seeds). Combine the reserved squash with the bacon, onion, garlic and parmesan, season with salt and pepper.

Stuff each squash with the mixture and place them in a baking dish. Cover with foil. Bake for 15 minutes or until the squash are heated through and the cheese is melted.
