We have yellow squash coming out the wazoo right now. We usually slice and grill. Anybody have a good stuffed stuffed squash recipe? Thanks, FG.

    we love to thin slice it and cook in the largest cast iron skillet we can fit on the egg heap it up as it shrinks major, with butter garlic and tons of onions till it all caramelizes. just shy of burnt :) if you mean the yellow summer squash it is kind of tender to stuff it has so much water in it when you cook it.

  • Here is a recipe that we like real well. I have done them with summer (yellow) squash too!

    Dad's Kitchen
    From JB
    Serves 4 (at least)

    1 plump zucchini (8" long and about 3" in diameter)
    1 onion, minced
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 yellow Banana pepper, minced
    1 Sm. Garden Salsa (hot) pepper, minced
    2 T. olive oil
    1/4 C. dry red wine
    3/4 to 1 lb. Hot or Medium, Italian sausage (fresh/bulk packed)
    Grated Parmesan cheese
    dash of salt
    Fresh chopped parsley

    1)) Brown the sausage, drain any resulting fat and set aside.

    2)) Meanwhile heat the zucchini in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, slice in half, length wise, scoop out the inside, making a "dug-out" boat.

    3)) Heat the oil in a sauté pan, add the onion, garlic and peppers and sauté until tender. Add the scooped squash, meat, dash of salt and wine. Sauté until almost dry.

    4)) Place "boats" in an oil filmed glass baking dish or on / in foil. Fill the squash with the mixture (over flowing is fine), top with a little grated Parmesan cheese and fresh chopped parsley. Bake (plate setter / indirect), covered, at 350 degree F. for about 15 mins. then uncover for about 15 more
