Patty Pan Squash - recipes please

Postby LizG » Fri Aug 12, 2011 10:55 am

I was given two courgette plants, only one turned out to be a patty pan squash. Does anyone have any good recipes for them?

I love petty pans.

When they are small baby discs just use them the same way you use courgettes.

When you leave them to grow into big yellow discs treat them the same way as any squash/marrow.

mmmm stuffed or chopped up and roasted with with fresh rosemary and sage.

Made into soup yum yum :clap:

I have never cooked them but have done spaghetti squash - I cooked it like a jacket potato and scooped out the flesh when done, no idea if the same applies.

We haven't got one of these plants this year. I bought three "yellow" courgette plants and only had one courgette so far; weather has been lousy for vegetables this year.

yep the skin is hard when it's larger just like most squashes and hard to peel so it's often easier to roast it with the skin still on. I find it hard to cut up you need a good strong sharpe knife and a strong hand.


T'is so true about the weather it's been far too wet for most squashes and too many slugs and snails.

Only two of my squashes germinated and the slugs and snails have taken their toil no fruit but the plants are shooting again. Even had they managed to survie the rain and the slugs/snails they'd not have fruited as the flowers wouldn't have be pollinated as the bees can't fly in rain. The flowers would have just rotted on the plant :cry:

Why don't slugs do anything useful - eat bindweed, for instance?
