    We got several small summer squash in our farm share box. I made these using a combination of cheddar and parm because that is what I had on hand.

    Mmmm! Yummy and easy! I used a blend of Cheddar and Mexican Blend and only garlic & parsley salt for my seasonings. I served with fresh ground black pepper. I had to cook for about 10 minutes longer than directed, but they came out perfect! I'll be making this again! Thanks for posting!

    I am not sure how often I will use this because I try not to turn the oven on in the summer. The kids actually made this for me since I was exhausted from work. They were not really cooked to my liking after 15 minutes, but my daughter's boyfriend's knife skills are not the greatest and the "spears" were more like "halves." They said that the seasoning amounts listed would have been too much, so they just sprinkled on the salt, pepper, and garlic powder. We used cheddar cheese because that is what we had. I liked them, but the son that is iffy on squash still didn't.

    Really good! Everyone enjoyed this even the squash squeamish 8 year old. I used sharp cheddar cheese and fresh chopped garlic. A great use of our garden fresh squash. Thanks for posting.
