Easy to make, uses both zucchini and yellow squash, tastes great, and is wonderful for you!
Wash squash and remove end pieces. Slice squash into one quarter or less inch rounds. (I use a mandolin). Combine remaining ingredients and pour over squash.
Cover, refrigerate several hrs or overnight, tossing occasionally - makes about 4 cups.
Lasts quite some time in the refrigerator and a spoonful or two added to any meal gives a great contrast. Looks pretty too!

This is a super easy "surprise" pie, and oh so good. I like it because you put everything into one bowl and pour into unbaked pie shell..very easy! I have made this recipe over and over at Thanksgiving and Christmas time.
Throw the first 6 ingredients in a pan and cook them until they are slightly thick. Add the lemon flavoring, pour it all into a pie crust and bake it at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Let cool and serve with a dollop of cool whip on top.

I love yellow squash! It's a lot more versatile than some people think.

I keep a jar of minced garlic in the fridge to use for quicker meals. Still tastes great to me! If you grow squash, zucchini, and tomatoes in a garden, this is a very tasty recipe to make and is easy on the wallet.

I have been given some pattypan squash and I would like to have some recipes for it, as I have never used it. I also need to know if it can be frozen, and how should it be prepared for that?

Pattypan Squash Recipes:
Freezing Patty Pan Squash:
Pattypan squash can be treated like any summer squash, including a zucchini. It can be grilled in thick slices, cut up and added to a stirfry, put into a cream sauce, sauteed in a mixed vegetable saute, and even stuffed after parboiling it for 15 or 20 minutes. Personally, I wouldn't freeze it unless I had a lot of it. I would enjoy it in the summer as fresh off the vine as I could have it. I feel that we all eat too much out of season vegetables and then wonder why the kids don't like their veggies. The kids I have known have all loved fresh veggies right out of the garden, hardly stopping to wash the soil off. However, if you have a super abundance of it, I would grate them up in a food processor (only cutting off the stem and bottom bit first) and then bag it up in one or two cup amounts. This could be used then just like zucchini is in zucchini bread! Enjoy your summer squash!!!!!
