Roasted Patty Pan Squash


I just love these little buggers! Well, actually I love pretty much all squash, these being no exception. I just love what personality they have, such cute little shapes. I think if I ever have kids I'll convince them they're actually little flying saucers tiny aliens abandon when they come to Earth. And you know what they'll do if you don't eat your veggies, right....

Meh, I'll stick with the nephew for now.

Roasted Patty Pan Squash

Serves 2

6-8 Patty Pan Squash, depending on size

1. Wash squash, slice off green ends, and then slice in half.

2. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3. Drizzle with olive oil.
