We always have an abundance of crookneck squash each year in our garden. I started experimenting with this recipe a few years ago using other fresh vegetables from the garden ~ it's deeeelicious!

This is a lovely meatless option for the grill. Light and fresh, it still serves up a super-satisfying flavor. Next time I'm thinking about adding chopped jalapenos too... yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Grilled & Stuffed Squash

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice the ends off the squash and cut them down the center lengthwise so there are two halves. Scoop out the seeds, making a well for the stuffing ingredients.
  2. Cut up and mix together all the remaining ingredients (excluding the butter) in a bowl and salt & pepper the mixture to taste.
  3. Place the squash on a large piece of aluminum foil and fill the center of each squash half with the mixture, then dot each one with butter. Sprinkle herbs and a bit of salt & pepper over the top of squash and cover loosely with foil (so the cheese doesn’t stick to the foil).
  4. Place the stuffed squash on the grill for around 20-30 minutes. You want the squash to be cooked well and the cheese & butter melted. Serve and enjoy!
