Pizza Stuffed Patty Pan Squash

It is summer, and the squash are abounding!  People seem to know what to do with zucchini and yellow crookneck squash, but are stumped by the strange “flying saucer” looking patty pans.  My favorite way to cook patty pan squash is to stuff them!  You can do this multiple ways, but pizza patty pans are one of my favorites.  Here is the basic recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 4 big patty pan squash about the size of your hand
  • 1 package of Italian sausage (try to use fresh sausage without chemicals)
  • 1 chopped onion
  • Bunch of mushrooms
  • 1 chopped banana pepper
  • Marinara sauce (I have been using a homemade sauce I get at Atherton Market called Cannizzaro Famiglia that is really yummy)
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Ricotta cheese

Instructions:

  • Fry out the sausage, onion, mushrooms, and pepper
  • Add the marinara to the sausage mixture
  • Spoon the mix into the hollowed out patty pan squash
  • Put a big dollop of ricotta cheese on top of each squash
  • Cover each squash with mozzarella cheese

  • Bake 40 minutes on a baking sheet with sides (to catch the run off).  Should be nice and bubbly when done.  
  • Serve it up with a nice side salad.  This is a great gluten free low carb dinner that is full of good veggies.
