Comments
Small pattypan squash, each the size of a golf ball, can be halved and sauteed very slowly to make them especially sweet-tasting. Because of their size and high skin-to-flesh ratio, they hold their shape better than other squash and are my first choice for this preparation. However, small zucchini cut into 3/4-inch-thick rounds could be handled the same way.
