Squash (or zucchini) picked fresh from the garden then stuffed and baked makes one of our favorite simple summer dinners.
Sausage Stuffed Squash
Ingredients: (serves 4)
2 large or 8 small zucchini or squash
2 large eggs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1+ cup homemade bread crumbs
1/4-1/2 pound sausage, fried and drained
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup mozzarella or Parmesan cheese
Boil the zucchini for 5-10 minutes or until almost tender. Remove from water and cool slightly.
Once cool enough to handle, gently cut off the top and with a spoon remove the insides, leaving just a small rim.
Blend or mash the pulp and add the eggs, cheese, bread crumbs, sausage and seasonings. If the mixture is soupy add up to half a cup more bread crumbs. Spoon into zucchini.
Place in a greased 9X13 pan and bake at 350 for 2o minutes or until tender. Top with cheese and bake five minutes more. Makes 4 servings. Enjoy!
