Fall Harvest Squash with Ricotta Cheese Filling

Serves 4.

4 patty-pan squashes, 5 to 6 inches across, from the garden.
1 cup fresh ricotta cheese (check expiration date).
1/2 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese.
1 Tablespoon minced green scallions from the garden.

Harvest HINT: If scallions are not available or in season, you may use chopped chives or green onion.

2 Tablespoons minced radishes from the garden.
2 Tablespoons chopped parsley from the garden.
2 cloves fresh crushed garlic from the garden
1 cup cooked corn kernels (canned or ears from the garden).
4 Tablespoons of your favorite tomato pasta sauce.
1 Tablespoon of your favorite fresh grated cheese.
Salt to taste.
Pepper, freshly ground to taste.

Garnish: Sprigs of fresh garden parsley from the garden

Preheat your oven to 400°F.

  1. Boil water in a large saucepan. Add squashes, cover, and steam for 5 minutes. Drain. Remove center core of squash and scoop out a 1-1/2 to 2 inch diameter opening through the center of the squash.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, mix both cheeses, garlic, corn, scallions, radishes, parsley and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Fill the center of each squash with cheese mixture.
  4. Place the squash in a casserole dish, cover, and bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Uncover the casserole dish. Top off the mixture in each squash, with 1 tablespoon pasta sauce. (See Preparation Hint)
  6. Sprinkle each squash with fresh grated cheese.
  7. Bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, or until squashes are tender and lightly browned.
  8. Garnish with parsley sprigs before serving. This is a very tasty garden side dish at it best. Enjoy...!

Preparation Hint: Use fresh diced garden tomatoes with fresh basil, instead of pasta sauce.

Taste of Gloucester Cook Book The Taste of Gloucester - A Fisherman's Wife Cooks - 8th Edition
"The Taste of Gloucester" cookbook was created by the Gloucester Fishermen's Wives and the Cape Ann League of Women's Voters to share recipes of lesser known species of fish as well as familiar ones. Their cookbook, The Taste of Gloucester has sold over 200,000 copies. The Taste of Gloucester recipes are drawn from tradition and are variations of ethnic specialties for different occasions. The original purpose of the cookbook was the promotion of underutilized fish to help the local fleet diversify. Squid, Atlantic Herring and Shark recipes are scattered among those for more familiar species. Copies of The Taste of Gloucester - 8th Edition, can be ordered through the Yankee Grocery Country Store.
