We love patty pan squash! When they come to the farmer’s market I load up! They keep for weeks, just store in a cool dry place.
Patty Pans should feel similar to a zucchini to the touch. The old ones have tough skin, so it’s important to pick them before they get old on the vine.

size of a hand.
Patty pan squash come in various sizes and colors, all are delicious!
This meal is a definite must to celebrate the beginning of harvest!
