Quick and Easy Stuffed Pattypan Squash
It has only been recently that I was introduced to this wonderful summer squash. What I love about it is that it has a mild earthy taste but very easy to cook with.
Many cooks choose to roast them with a little oil or even pan fry them.
For me, I like the idea of stuffing it with one of my favorite recipes: Arroz Congri.
When baked with a touch of cheese, this delicious jewel of the garden can’t be beat.
Carefully cut off the top quarter of the squash. Then using a small spoon, scoop out the white flesh without breaking into the sides.
These pattypan squash are ready for filling.
Fill with your rice and bean mixture, heaping just above the top.
Finally top with finely grated mixed Italian cheese.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes or so at 400 degrees F.
Serve as a side dish alongside your favorite meat like Cuban Pulled Pork or Carnitas.
