Here's another delicious way to use all of that squash your co-workers keep bringing to the office... 

Roasted Patty Pan Squash with Maple Ginger Sausage

6 patty pan squash
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
2 tbsp fresh chopped thyme or marjoram
1/8 cup chopped onion (or more if you like)
1/2 cup freshly cooked corn off the cob
1 cup shredded asiago cheese
1 Gunpowder Bison maple + ginger sausage - cut into 1/8" slices

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut patty pan squash into 1/2" thick slices and place on sheet pan.
Top with all ingredients with slices of sausage on top.
Place in oven and cook for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

I've done this recipe with maple ginger sausage and also with bacon. I preferred the sweeter taste with the sausage.

You can always do this with zucchini and yellow squash, too, depending on their size.

  1. I actually bought patty pan squash so I could specifically make this for my family this week. I can't wait! Looks fabulous! Thanks for the suggestion Amy.

  2. I have done something very similair with out the meat on it. My kids love them. Don't tell them what it is!

    I made this tonight with several alterations and it was delicious! Since I am vegetarian, I used the Morningstar veggie sausage but added some real maple syrup into the mixture. Didn't have asiago cheese in the fridge, so I substituted mozzarella/parmesan. Still really good... and different from how I normally stirfry squash.
    Thanks, hon!
