Sharing is caring!

Baked Squash and Zucchini Spears. Yellow Squash and Zucchini cut into spears and baked to a soft perfection with a little bit of seasonings. Great side dish.

2 pictures. Top picture has the ingredients needed for the dish.  The bottom pictures shows a pile of squash and zucchini piled on a plate.

These are a perfect side dish that could compliment so many main dishes. I made these with my Chicken Casserole with Stuffing (not posted just yet). Should be by the time you read this though.

Is “green squash” a zucchini?

Yes, they are the same thing. All Zucchini are squash, but not all squash are zucchini.

Do you peel zucchini before cooking?

If there is a wax on the skin, to extend it’s shelf life, then yes, peel the skin. Other than that, it’s a personal preference.

Can cooked squash be frozen?

You can freeze squash. Go to “Pick Your Own” and check out their step-by-step guide. They cover every step of the way!
