ready to eat!

These are beauties from my garden and after browsing plenty as to how to cook ‘em, I decided I will make a stuffed bake out of it! These squashes are as easy on the eyes as they are on the palate

The joy of cooking home grown abounds and “homegrown” will probably be my most favorite words for the summer!
This is a super healthy recipe and SO easy to make – I feel so good and pleased if I make a wonderful new dish and it is SO easy to make!
Ingredients
Pattypan squash (as many as you need or have)
Stuffing Ingredients
2- 3 tomatoes
1 onion
1 cup of cottage cheese
Spices:
Oregano
Pepper
Basil
Green chili 2-3
Turmeric
Fresh sage
Fresh Garlic chives
pattypan4
With the turmericborders

Preparation

Slit the pattypan head exactly where the flowery edges are and scoop the seeds out – keep the head of the squash to use with a different recipe (hope to blog this too)
I used Turmeric as a decoration around the edges of the flower and for more beautiful pictures, besides of course the wonderful flavors it brings to the dish
Make the stuffing
In 1 tbsp of olive oil, sauté the stuffing like you would a sauce, making sure to add the cottage cheese last and set aside
Prepare the patty pan by adding the same spices and some sea salt, so that it does not taste blah by itself
Now add the stuffing into the scooped hole in the patty pan
Grate some parmesan on top of it and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees
Eat hot…
As always, love you all and see you in your blogs soon
