There are times in the year when we have so much squash and zucchini that Nana looks for new recipes, because she is afraid we’ll stop eating her food.  (Never gonna’ happen.)

This is a recipe that she found in Southern Living magazine trying to solve that problem.  It has been tested with the family, and it was a success.  She wanted to pass it along for y’all to enjoy.  Let us know how you enjoy it with your family.
