One of my wife's favorite patty pan recipes is stuffed patty pan squash.
You boil the squash until they are tender, then scoop out the middle, saving all the parts that you scoop out.
Then you fry the inside bits with onions, garlic, ham, bacon, or anything else that you like to use for stuffing.
Once everything is hot, you stir in breadcrumbs to hold everything together, then stuff the squash shells with what you just made.
Some people like to add cheese, but I'm lactose intolerant, so my wife doesn't put any one mine.
Then you bake everything together in the oven for about 15 minutes until it's all piping hot, then serve.
They are truly delicious, and, as the article said, healthy enough to offset the stuffing, at least a little bit.
