Baked summer squash

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
6 Squash, yellow
¾ cup Cheese, ricotta
4 Onions, green; chopped
½ teaspoon Parsley
½ teaspoon Sage, rubbed
½ teaspoon Thyme leaves


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove and discard stem ends of the squash. Slice the squash lengthwise, scoop out seeds and place the halves side-by-side on a baking sheet. Combine remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl. Fill the hollows in the squash evenly with the cheese mixture. Bake 15-20 minutes or until squash is tender. Serve immediately.

Sylvia's comments: This is a recipe with infinite possibilities! I used large summer squash and saved the removed seeds, then added just garlic salt, since I wanted to taste it "as is" before I made a lot of modifications. But it should take almost anything! I'm planning to add different cheeses, chopped olives, and every spice in my spice cabinet. If you really couldn't handle a meatless main dish, sausage, bacon, or any cooked diced meat should work great.
