These stuffed baby squashes are speedy to make and super delicious. Raw squash is surprisingly hearty and the nutty Italian filling (which is oil-free) makes them extra satisfying.
Stuffed baby squash makes the perfect appetizer (or quickie and healthy snack).
The vibrant “confetti” bell peppers give this recipe that extra festive touch that’s both sophisticated and fun.
And of course, these bite-sized hors d’œuvres are vegan (dairy-free) and gluten-free.

Where I am, the squash variety that we have are mostly the yellow ones. I wonder if that will give a different after taste. Anyways, will try it!
