I got all these lovely boys from Emer at her Springfield Walled Organic Garden, Drumcollagher.
I thought I'd never eat them all but I'm converted to the joy of squash!
So far I've had baked whole Patty Pans (the mad bumpy looking ones), roasted Ichy Kuri (sp) the roundy ones, which are amazing just sliced and roasted with olive oil, salt n pepper. I made a cheesy spud n courgette pie topped with breadcrumbs and walnuts and roasted and devoured the seeds too. A courgette cake is just out of the oven. I'll take a photo and post recipe after I ice it with cream cheese and lime icing and eat most of it
