    lolablitz's Note:

    This is a wonderful way to use your CSA veggies or abundance of home garden veggies. My 10 month old gobbles this up faster than anything! Alternatively you can use Italian breadcrumbs and omit the oregano and basil. Enjoy!

      Used 3" diameter patty pans and they made a delightful presentation. I also made a batch using plain sliced yellow summer squash, choosing to not stuff them. Both methods had excellent flavor. Be sure to use fresh breadcrumbs, not dried.
