Stuffed Yellow Squash

A good cook will always use what’s on hand, or what the season gives us…
Yellow squash is on tonight’s menu.

Wash and bake the squash for about 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven
in a baking dish with a little water on the bottom.

When cooled, cut them and take out all the seeds.

Stuff them anyway you like. Here’s what I did.

Mix ¼ lb of chopped beef and ¼ lb of chopped pork. Cook these together without fat or oil. Set aside. In a mixing bowl use about ½ cup of ricotta, ½ mozzarella chopped, and ½ Parmigiano grated. You may want to add some tomato sauce to the mix also—it’s lovely and moist this way.

Chop 1/2 onion and add together the meat, onion and cheeses … (this of course, is not Kosher…) You can substitute the meat with chopped mushrooms, and it’ll be good also. Season to taste

Stuff the squash, top with seasoned grated breadcrumbs and a dollop of tomato sauce. Arrange in a baking pan with a little bit of olive oil smeared on the bottom. Bake for 15 minutes in a high over (400 degrees.)
