I make something I call Zucchini Gerry (it's my mom's
recipe). It's zucchini thinly sliced and lightly
sauteed with tomatoes, basil, garlic and olive oil.
I've also made that with yellow squash and it's really

what they call yellow zucchini (I think it's a hybrid
of zucchini and yellow squash) that tastes really good
like that also.
There's also pumpkin bread. You can make bread with
almost any squash. They'll all taste better.
Mom used to make spaghetti squash by just poking holes
in it and steaming it. Then you cut it open and
scrape out the stuff. You can mix it with butter and
brown sugar if you want.

with brown sugar and butter.
