Sauté mushrooms that you have cut very small. Add herbs (note above amount is listed as "1" - use the amount you would like to try and experiment); cook until mushrooms are done, remove from heat and add cream cheese; mix well. Slit squash flowers and add a tiny slice of cheese of your choice. I use white cheddar. Then fill with mushroom mix. Twist flower together and put on pan that has olive oil on it. Bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes, then broil to your liking for approximately 10 minutes. Enjoy! Note: You can make up any filling you like.
