Patty Pan Gone Wild!
Normally when I find patty pan squash they're rather small, about an inch or two in diameter. Last week at the farmer's market I found huge ones, about five inches in diameter. I sliced them about a quarter inch thick and then cut them crosswise. Then I layered them in a casserole topping each layer with salt , pepper, butter and fresh basil leaves.They took about 45 minutes to bake in a 350F oven. Unlike the small patty pan which remind me of zucchini, these were more winter squash like in texture and flavor. If you find some, give them a try. Next time I think I'll stuff them with something!
