Summer Squash Parmesan Crisps

As soon as the temperatures rise, and the smell of fresh cut of grass is in the air, I am reminded of enjoying fresh, savory vegetables from my parent's wonderful garden. Fresh squash is synonymous with summertime to me.

I recently picked up some wonderful goodies from my husband's grandparents. So, I thought I would put those goodies to use and share this savory and sweet recipe from Food Network that conjures up summertime memories. This recipe is ideal for many situations. It is great as a snack, appetizer for a dinner party, or as a side item. It is also delightful warm or cold. If the sweet smells of fresh and baked parmesan don't get you, then the sweet, yet savory taste of the squash will. So be prepared to enjoy the smells and tastes of this very simple delight.

After I took the warm squash out of the oven, I placed them on a cooling rack so that they maintained their consistency and cooled down properly.
