Hi friends!

There is something kind of fun and whimsical about patty pan squash.  They are just about the cutest vegetable you can grow in my opinion!

I planted two Patty Pan squash plants this year and they have gone crazy!  I shared a few of them on Instagram and some of you asked what in the world I was going to do with them!   I cut a lot of them up and roasted or sauteed them like any other squash, but one day when I had a little more time on my hands, I stuffed them!

Enter my Stuffed Patty Pan Squash recipe.  See? Aren’t they cute!!!

They are stuffed with so much goodness….

Wheat berries, mushrooms, kale, herbs and even a little feta for fun (you can easily leave that out to make this dairy-free or vegan)

To make the Stuffed Patty Pan Squash recipe you start with larger patty pan squash.  These are about 4 inches across.

Then I then cut off the top and scooped out the seeds like a pumpkin.

Next I assembled the filling, stuffed the squash and put the little top hat back on the squash.

The result is not only the tastiest, but cutest way to eat a patty pan squash.  It’s really a wonderful well- rounded vegetarian main course!

Lovely enough for guests, but simple enough to make for a weeknight dinner.

Enjoy!

    You grew this in your garden? Nice!
    These are completely adorable! I’ve seen patty pan squash at the market, but aside from roasting them, I wasn’t really sure what else to do with them. Love this idea!

    Hi Julie! These squashes look so cute! What a great idea! I never new they were called pan squash and have always seen them but have not yet had the chance to cook with them (mainly because I didn’t know what to do with them). Excited to try out your recipe!

      I know! They look a little intimidating– but just use them like any other squash.

      Haha! I really wanted a bunch of zucchini, and I got a few, but the patty pan took OFF!
