Here's a couscous recipe where I used some zucchini and patty pan summer squash. I ended up using a whole small-medium zucchini and a whole medium yellow patty pan squash. It wasn't overpowering at all. I also sprinkled some feta cheese on the top. It is some goat cheese we purchased at the farmer's market. Yum!
Blue Rose Dairy is the vendor we purchase the cheese from.
