PattyPan Squash Recipes #1: Spicy Stuffed Squash


I've had a lot of people on twitter ask for some of my pattypan squash recipes, and for advice on how to cook them.  A detailed post on cooking the squash will come later this week, but for now, the spicy stuffed squash bowl.  I was trying to use up some of my garden produce, and decided to use a squash and some less than perfect corn ears to make a zesty and filling dish.  After cooking the corn and the squash, I set them to the side to cool.  I don't need all that corn for this, I used a knife to remove the corn from the cobs, and then what I didn't use in this recipe got frozen for later use.

While the squash cooled off, I cooked some cut up chorizo sausage, some green peppers, and onions with some olive oil in the skillet.  When the veggies are tender and the sausage is done, I let it cool and put it into a bowl. 

I added some of the corn and some parmesan cheese in with the sausage and veggies.  You can add some salt and pepper here if you like, but it has plenty of flavor on its own.  Since the squash was cooled off, I took the center out and chopped a few pieces of squash to mix in with the filling. 

Finally, I stuffed the cooked squash with the filling mix.  I had so much filling it wouldn't even fit inside.  I had to spill some over the edges.  I put it all in a glass baking dish and let it heat up and blend the flavors for about 15-20 minutes.  Then it was ready to eat.  You can add a little salsa on the side, it takes the heat up a notch and makes it even more fantastic.  I love spicy foods, do you?
