    cusa squash?

    Has anyone heard of this? I got some in my CSA box this week and a google search has come up with only one mention and it isn't even a recipe. I am thinking there is another name for this squash besides cusa. I wish I had my digital camera here, I would post a picture. Anyone have any ideas? They are short, LIGHT green, think skinned and about the size of a zuccini.

    I think I've seen something called a kusa squash at the farmer's market. It looked like what you just described.

    Okay, editing to say I just googled "Kusa" and got a few hits. Consensus seems to be it's a lebanese squash, is good for stuffing, and can be cooked like zucchini.
