Baked Patty Pan Squash with Marinara and Garlic Breadcrumbs
This baked patty pan squash is a great way to use the bountiful summer squash
Around here the favorite meals are pizza and breakfast for dinner. Announcing either of these as the dinner special of the day will bring a round of cheers and also some hugs and kisses from the kiddos in the house.
I found this recipe on the lovely blog Love and Olive Oil and it is a keeper. I actually first made this recipe last year but forgot about it until my mom called asking if I remembered a recipe I had made last summer with the patty pan squash they had in their garden. I could only vaguely remember and couldn’t find the recipe on my Pinterest but after a little searching I found it again. I was glad I found it because L deemed it better than breakfast for dinner!
It drives hubby slightly crazy that I usually only make a meal once and very rarely repeat meals. I enjoy making new recipes but the real reason is that I often make a dish and forget about it. I started a tried and true recipe board on Pinterest. Now I just have to remember to pin to it!
If you are not familiar with patty pan squash it is similar in taste to zucchini and can be subbed for zucchini in many recipes. You could even shred it and use it like zucchini in bread and other baked goods.
If you have more squash than you know what to do with definitely give this recipe a try.
