Fresh cucumbers, walla walla sweets, beans, snow peas, and beets. These are a few of the veggies we’ve been enjoying of late from our Camas garden. However, one interesting squash variety has become a real favorite of our multi-generational family – pattypan squash.
Pattypan squash is generally small, round and shallow, with scalloped edges that make it resemble a flying saucer. We try to pick them when they are on the small side as they are the most tender with a delicate buttery, or olive oil-like flavor.
The small squash can be braised, steamed, roasted, or grilled whole. One of our favorite ways to enjoy them is to cut them in half, hollow out the center, and fill with turkey sausage, shallots, and mushrooms. A sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan adds the finishing touch.
You won’t find pattypan squash in most markets. However, the growing popularity of Farmer’s Markets around the county has introduced more and more people to this wonderful variety of summer squash. We first grew it in our garden last year and now can’t imagine summers without it.
