This recipe was very good, my husband even liked it and he isn’t fond of squash.

This was easy and came out great. It would also be good made with pattypan (flying saucer) squash. It would probably be less crisp with zucchini.I made about 1/2 pound of squash, which made 2 generous side-dish servings, and then I used the leftover panko and parmesan mixture to coat some pork chops, which I baked at the same time.

Simple and very tasty. I also tried the same method with zucchini and green tomatoes with good results. I used some seasoned Panko bread crumbs the second time and omitted the parmesan. It was really good.
