Yellow pattypan squash are flattened, saucer-shaped courgettes, also known as yellow bush scallop squash. There is also a white pattypan variety; you can use either. This dish makes a colourful and elegant side or starter.
Tried this last night and it was really nice. Also used it to stuff a large cricket ball size courgette - 08 Aug 2010
At the farmer's market I bought a basket of very small baby patty pans, 1-2 inches across, some the pale green, some bright yellow, and some the dark green. Obviously I couldn't stuff them so I cut them in half horizontally and layered the rest of the ingredients on top in a casserole dish. Baked for the same amount of time and OH MY GOODNESS...it was soooooo good. I did sprinkle the top with a bit of extra parmesan to give it a nice browned topping. EXCELLENT. I think this would work no matter the size, the large ones would serve more than one person. I love the tender tiny ones. - 25 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was incredible. Everyone in the family loved it. One thing though. Next time I don't think I'll saute the onion in the bacon drippings but olive or some other unsaturated oil instead. I don't think that would hurt the dish. My arteries are begging for mercy! - 07 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
