These pattypan squash were too cute to cut them up, so I decided to do the least harm and stuff them. You can use your favorite stuffing to fill these. However, because the squash were so tender  I cooked the stuffing first so that the time in the oven would not be too long.

cook 1 cup quinoa (set aside)

olive oil

1  onion

1  shallot

salt & pepper to taste

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Bed of Kale and Swiss Chard


Swiss Chard

1 cup of chicken broth

parsley, basil, celery leaves

Add bell pepper,  flesh from squash  and cook for a few minutes until tender

Fill squash to the top, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and press tops in place
