The good old-fashioned country way. This is definitely NOT diet food. You don't drain the bacon fat off after you brown it. If you really have to, you can substitute butter, but it won't be the same. You can also use this recipe with a combination of yellow and pattypan squash.

As this recipe’s first reviewer, I’m happy to say that while this may not be particularly unique, it is nonetheless particularly delicious. I often prepare any number of different vegetables with bacon and it has never let me down, especially when fresh minced garlic is added! Tonight I chose to use both green and yellow patty pan squash, but zucchini or yellow squash would be equally as good.

Great use of all the squash we have in the summer. Just the right amount of bacon. I did drain it after cooking - before serving because the squash gives off so much water.

This was good. The mistake I made was not to peel and seed the squash first.
