If you are new to the CSA, and looked in the summer squash bin last week, you may have avoided this beauty. Pattypan squash taste quite similar to other summer squash. Their unique shape makes them prime candidates for stuffing. Simply place in boiling water for a few minutes to soften, scoop out inside, and stuff with your favorite stuffing recipe.
Like other summer squash, patty pan have no cholesterol, and are high in Vitamin C.
You can also slice them for roasting, sautéing, or any other preparation that you would use for summer squash. Generally, the smaller the squash, the more tender the flesh.
