Family Recipes: Squash and Cheese Tartlets

Family Recipes: Squash and Cheese Tartlets

Summer SquashSummer CSAs are a fantastic way to try new veggies, but sometimes it can be challenging to find ways to use up all those vegetables before they go bad. When faced with an overload of summer squash last year, Family Room blogger, Kris-Ann, turned to friends and Pinterest for some new recipes.

It turns out that one of her favorite summer squash recipes wasn’t even a squash recipe at all. While the original recipe for squash and cheese tartlets called for zucchini, Kris-Ann substituted summer squash. And the result? A delicious side dish that Kris-Ann would definitely recommend if you happen to find yourself with a full CSA box of summer squash!
