SummerSquash

You will need a mixing bowl, baking pan, a knife for chopping and a cutting board.  A sheet of parchment for the baking pan will make clean up much easier.

Remember when cooking it is a fun way to be creative and experiment. I think about what is on hand and what blends might taste good together. Give it a go - you  just never know.   This is a gluten free recipe.
