Ever tried cooking with the blossoms? I also wanted to share this recipe as it was the *only* way us kids would eat squash besides fried.... Named from old fine dining place in Memphis popular around 35 years ago...

Justine Squash

2 lbs. your fave summer sqaush
2 large onions
2 - 3 cups shredded cheese, 1/3 reserved (we like cheddar)
1/2 to 1 stick butter or spray oil (you determine use)
salt and pepper to taste

Slice onions and summer squash thinly. Buttter/spray covered baking dish. Layer squash, onions, butter/spray, cheese, salt/pepper and repeat.

Cover and bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until veggies are tender. Once tender, add final cheese layer & return to oven until cheese is melted & bubbly/browned (10 - 15 min)...

Enjoy!
