No one has asked the one important question - how large is it??

If it's the size you should normally pick them at (4"-6" tops), you'll need more than one for a meal, but can use virtually any summer squash recipe.

However, if you waited to pick it at 9" to 12", you really don't have much recourse but to halve & stuff it.

GB have you ever tried stuffing the squash flowers?
They are very very good. I do it with zucchini and pumkin flowers
every year.

Breezy is it about 6 or 7 inches I would say. It is certainly not enough for a meal on it's own, but good for a side dish or a little snack.

pds I thought about doing that last year and got some recipes here, but I never made any of them. What do you stuff yours with?

You could thinly slice it and use it as alternating layers with pasta for a lasagna.

I just simply like it steamed or boiled, then add butter and cracked black pepper.
