Have you ever seen a "patty-pan" squash? I think they are usually white or a greenish white color. I haven't seen them or heard of them, but I did have a pack of Golden Scallopini Squash seeds. Sometimes I think I should study up on things in a little more detail, but that takes all of the surprise out of it. It is like getting an unexpected gift, for no reason at all, from a very dear friend.
These plants took off. I really had no idea what I was getting into, and I seriously underestimated their size. They were overcrowded and along with the heat and a few unwanted squash bugs, their production was cut short.
Easily you could cook these anyway that you would cook yellow crookneck squash. I have cooked this squash stuffed with a cheese and sausage and baked them. I thought they were wonderful. I am alone in my love for squash though. My family was not interested, but I didn't mind at all. I shared some with friends, and now they are done.
I will plant these again next year and I will try some of the squash blossom recipes on http://www.bellalimento.com/ .
Now to decide what will go in their place...
