Thank you! We used both yellow and zucchini for this and it was awesome. So very glad to have found this recipe... my honey bunch said it tasted a bit like egg fu young to him. I know it was simply delicious. Thanks again!

My husband and I really loved these. I was wondering how much squash I needed for two cups. I used one very large yellow squash and it yielded almost exactly two cups. These tasted great and were even a little addicting. The squash taste is completel masked which was slightly disappointing. This amost tastes just like an omelet to us....very good. I could not get my two year old to taste it.
