You should know something about me…. I am OBSESSED with pinterest.
But really, if you are not currently on pinterest, then something needs to change… STAT!
Pinterest is near and dear to my heart, because there is a never ending plethora of amazing food, clothes, hair, travel destinations, and crafting ideas. You can literally be amused looking at the “pins” for hours (and I would know!).
|Thank you pinterest|
So when I found a pin on pinterest for Stuffed Zucchini Squash I knew I had to come up with my own version of the recipe. The result?…purely delicious! And I have pinterest to thank for that!
Upon inspection, you may think a vegetable stuffed with more vegetables would be bland and non-delicious. Well, think again because the key to this dish is a layering of flavors… sweet caramelized onion and carrots, meaty mushrooms, fresh tomato, a hint of cheese, and you can’t forget the bacon! (10 bucks says you just got a little hungry)
Seriously, this is a perfect way to eat your veggie’s in a delightful and interesting combination! Try it out! You will definitely NOT be disappointed!
Vegetable Stuffed Squash
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1/4 small red onion, diced
- 1/4 cup carrot, diced
- 3 small shiitake mushrooms, diced
- 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

In a small sauté pan, heat the oil on medium heat. Then add the onion and carrot and cook for 5 minutes, until translucent. Turn down the heat to low and add mushrooms and garlic. Cook until everything is soft, about another 4 – 5 minutes. Remove from heat when cooked.
Slice your yellow squash in half, lengthwise.
