Cup-shaped with a scalloped edge, baby pattypan squash is yellow, green or white. It is most tender when small, so look for ones no more than 3 inches (8 cm) wide.

  • Credits : August 2009

Ingredients

  • 18 pattypan squash (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 teaspoons finely chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Method

Cut squash in half. In large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper; add squash, tossing to coat. Thread onto 4 soaked wooden skewers, reserving remaining marinade in bowl.

Place skewers on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning occasionally, until tender and grill-marked, 8 to 10 minutes.

Add tomatoes and parsley to reserved marinade. Remove squash from skewers and add to tomato mixture; toss to coat. Serve warm. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
