I haven't made these yet, but it sure is a cute idea!

I definitely think I'd top 'em with some asiago or parmigiano-reggiano

Those are adorable, muzicgirl....

I've seen some pattypan squash at the market but they are all too small ~ maybe they'll get larger in the next couple weeks.

If not, I'm thinking a casserole dish lined with spaghetti squash and baked (like the faux quiche shell I made) would be a tasty substitute....

that's a lovely idea for a quiche shell! Smile - I have not used spaghetti squash to make a crust before, but love making a shredded yam crust which works well for many recipes ... the spaghetti squash would likely be a better sort of "all-purpose" flavor - is the shell "lumpy" when you use spaghetti squash? What is your method of preparation?

It was really good - just forked out the strands and pressed into a buttered casserole dish, pressing to give an even coating. I baked it and had to blot a bunch of moisture out about 1/2 way through as well as poke a couple holes to allow the steam from the under part to cook off. It took a bit of time but eventually dried out sufficiently to be used as a crust. And it was just the squash so that's the taste I got....

I've done it a couple times since - once with an egg like you suggested with the pattypan (I used a pyrex custard cup). What I wanted to do was make the squash shell firm enough to stand on it's own and hold the egg....didn't work.

It was still tasty (but I did NOT take a pic of a "SPLAT" mess!).

Beth, what kind of oven is that in your photo? Is that a toaster oven? It looks like more than a toaster oven so I'm intrigued and had to ask.

And those pattypan squash were cute as all get out. I'm hoping we get to see some pics of your beautiful vegetarian dishes, Muzicgirl. Your food could inspire even hardcore carnivores to try meatless for a change. cheers

Yes, Michelle, it's a DeLongi Convection Toaster Oven. (Lyn had two and gave that one to me...go figure) I use it for anything that will fit in there!

It's really nice, although I rarely use it for toast. But it's got a dehydrator setting I'm going to utilize. We were at the Farmer's Market the other day and they were selling the zucchini chips and beet chips - $5.95 for a handful in a bag. I've made both, really love the zucchini chips, and plan to make more soon.
