Patty pan squash comes in a fun shape like a flying saucer and tastes like a squash or zucchini. Baby patty pans are 2-3 inches in diameter and can be eaten raw or cooked. It is small enough to be cooked whole. It can also be halved and stuffed or chopped up for salads, sauteing, roasting or grilling. Bigger patty pans may need to be peeled and sliced as they get harder as they get more mature.
