Garlic-Herb Pattypan Squash

The first time I grew a garden, I harvested summer squash and cooked it with garlic and herbs. Using pattypan squash is a creative twist. —Kaycee Mason, Siloam Springs, Arkansas

    I found the olive oil mixture to thick to "drizzle" on the pattypan. I ended up spooning it with little dobs on pieces. I measured all the spices precisely, it was the garlic that I didn't, perhaps I was too heavy handed causing the thickness. For me I found it too salty, for my husband, he said it needed it because of how bland pattypan is.

    I couldn't find pattypan squash, so I used zucchini and yellow squash. It was wonderful and everyone loved it!

    This recipe makes a great side dish! Even better, it is very easy to make! I love patty pan squash as it has mild flavor and is softer than other squashes. The flavors in the dish really complement the squash taste too. We served this with some grilled chicken and it was great!
