Patty pan squash recipes aren’t nearly as numerous as zucchini recipes. But to me, summer isn’t summer without fresh patty pan squash (…and tomatoes, and zucchini, and onions, and lemonade).
Patty pans go by many names. Depending on where you’re from, you might call them sunburst squash, scallop squash, button squash, or white squash. I call them patty pans. It’s much more fun that way.
This simple patty pan squash recipe takes minutes to prepare and tastes like summer thanks to the abundance of fresh basil. (And yes, where I live, it is summer already, and will be for at least the next 4 months!)
