Our family loves both winter and summer squashes, so when I come across a squash recipe I try to save it. I haven't tried this one yet, but it looks good to me!

What s cute (and delicious) idea! I made this as written with patty pan squashes that were a bit larger than 3" round. When I cut the tops off, I scraped the seeds out, but saved the flesh parts. I then chopped the flesh and added it to the sauteing celery and onion. These little squashes make a pretty presentation and are yummy! This would make a cute side dish for company. Thanx for posting this!
