Pattipan squash belongs to the summer squash family. It is saucer-shaped with a scalloped edge and white, yellow, green or streaked skin. Its flesh is whitish and firm, with a pleasant, nutty flavour. Pattypan squash is at its best when measuring between 8 and 10 cm in diameter. It may be substituted by other summer squash types, including zucchini.

8 pattypan squash 650 g
3/4 cup white wine 190 mL
3 tbsp lemon 1 lemon
2/3 cup water 170 mL
1 sprig fresh thyme 0.4 g
1 bay leaf 0.2 g
1/4 cup olive oil 65 mL
2 tbsp Italian parsley, fresh, chopped 10 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]


  1. Blanch the pattypan squash in a pot of salted boiling water, about 4 min, until al dente. Drain them and immerse in cold water to stop the cooking and fix the colour.
  2. Pour the white wine, lemon juice, and water in a pan. Put the squash in the pan, add the sprig of thyme, the bay leaf, then bring to a simmer. Cook for about 10 min, uncovered, then remove the squash from the pan.
  3. Reduce the liquid by boiling rapidly for 8-10 min, until the liquid is reduced to a half. Strain it, add the olive oil, then pour the mixture over the squash. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Let sit until cool for the flavours to be absorbed.
  4. Serve luke-warm or at room temperature.
