Living in the countryside where most people garden, I am often faced with the common question of what to do with too many summer squash. I made this recipe with yellow crooknecks, but it ought to work with any firm squash, like zucchini or patty-pan. It is almost soufflé like, fluffy and creamy and cheesy all at once.
I wanted to make a yummy dessert with Naan flatbread. In the past, I had used it for savory dishes but this time I wanted to use it as a dessert. We used butternut squash for it’s mild sweet flavor, with a quick caramel and toppings I now have a dessert to remember. I am certain this will be a favorite for our family for years to come!
This recipe came about because I had a large zucchini from my garden and I didn’t want it to go to waste. I love fried breaded zucchini, one of my favorites. I had left over ricotta cheese from a competition 2 days before and I didn’t want to waste it, so…. you guessed it.. my recipe was born! I fried up the zucchini and make a spicy dipping sauce with the ricotta, olive oil and Italian spices. It was gone in no time, so I guess this experiment was a big success. Not all recipes turn out that way, so I was happy to hit a home run with this one!
