Pitty Pat Squash All in one Dinner

One of my favorite things to do on Saturday Morning, during the months of May-Sept.  is to go to our local  farmers Market for fresh vegetables.  This past Saturday on a visit there, I found a new squash called  “Pitty Pat Squash”

I purchased 2 rather large squash. The lady I purchased them from told me how she cooked this squash, so I took her recipe and added some of my own ideas. I cooked both for dinner. It turned out pretty good. My husband, son and I ate 1 squash.   I am sure you could add another vegetable to the meal, however I served the one dish as a meal. I did offer worcestershire sauce, ketchup,  pickles, and olives, which complemented the meal very well.  I hope you enjoy:
