    This is a very good recipe. Our family had never tried pattypan squash before and my husband liked it so much he asked for it again. Too bad... my sister's garden is out of pattypan for the year... I made it with one large squash instead of many small and adjusted the ingredients appropriately. Thanks for the great recipe!

    It was my first time ever having pattypan and this recipe made my experience easy and delicious. Definately use a melon scoop to get the flesh out of the melon... it works so well. I added ground pepper, celery and used mozzarella cheese (that's what I had).

    This was not bad. I thought the stuffing mixture was great, but it was hard to work with (scooping out the flesh without breaking the squash).

    I would refer you to Bergy's excellent drainage suggestions. Not many pattypan squash recipes available and this is a good one. I especially liked the thyme as the seasoning. Very impressive presentation at a dinner party.

    This was a great recipe. I added parmesan cheese to the breadcrumb/squash meat mix too! yum!
