    I saw a recipe this week (I think it was Martha stewart) I'll look for it I saved it somewhere. anyway it had squash ribbons (like sliced with a vegetable peeler), I think maybe they were marinated, then mixed with cheese and used for stuffing in jumbo pasta shells, it looked great.

    Cut them in half and scrap the seeds out and then place cut side down on a cookie sheet add a little water and bake at 350 degrees until you can pierce with a knife. You can freeze this for later use, and use it in place of pumpkin for pies or loaves or you can make soup too....lots of recipes on-line for squash.

    I have a bumper crop of zucchino rampicante. I feed them to the chickens. They LOVE it.

    I am so glad I found this thread. I have never grown the patty pan squash before, but now I have several staring at me and no idea what to do with them...LOL

    I let one get too big so I think that one is going to get stuffed and baked

    Stuffed Patty Pans

    Scoop out the middle of the squash and hollow so that you have a thick shell. (If the squashes aren't stable, slice a thin round off the bottom so that it sits straight.) Chop up scooped veg and saute with onion and garlic until soft. Remove and mix with ground meat (chicken, turkey, beef, pork) and an egg, and a little bit of bread crumb or rolled oats, and parm. cheese, then season to taste with salt, pepper, and thyme. Stuff the shells with the meat mixture. Pour seasoned tomato sauce in bottom of a baking pan, lay stuffed squash in, then top with more sauce and a sprinkle of cheese. Cover with foil and bake 1 hour. Serve with rice.

    Hey Quillgirl -
    I made a very similar recipe a few months back using ground venison, chopped fresh spinach, onions, fresh garlic, grated carrot and italian bread crumbs and an egg as the stuffing and topped with mozzarella. It was wonderful! That was the first time I had ever had patty pan squash. I really like your idea of tomato sauce, I will be trying that next time!
