Patty Pan Squash
One of the tastiest summer squashes is the patty pan squash, also known as sunburst squash. This oddly shaped vegetable, which somewhat resembles a flying saucer, comes in yellow, green and white varieties. When eaten young, patty pan squash is extremely tender and delicate in flavor. It is also a very healthy food - offering a wide variety of vitamins and minerals including folate, magnesium, niacin, and vitamin A. The exterior of patty-pan squash is especially rich in nutrients, so make sure to leave the skin intact when serving.
Patty pan squash is delicious on it’s own, simply sliced and pan sautéed with some olive oil, salt and pepper.
