Full Answer

To make baby zucchini and patty pan squash sautéed in herb butter, melt 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter in a 10-inch skillet over moderate heat. Add 2 cups of stemmed baby zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and 2 cups of trimmed patty pan squash, halved crosswise. Sauté the mixture, stirring occasionally, for seven to eight minutes until it is tender. Transfer the vegetables to a serving dish, and season the mixture with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Add 3/4 cup fresh torn basil and 1/2 cup of fresh mint leaves, and toss all ingredients together.

To make scalloped squash casserole, mix one stick of melted, unsalted butter with an 8-ounce package of stuffing mix, and set it aside. Parboil 2 pounds of sliced patty pan squash and 1 chopped onion in a small amount of water for 6 to 8 minutes. Drain the mixture, add 1 cup of grated carrot, 1 can cream of chicken soup and 1 cup of sour cream, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Place half of the stuffing mix in the bottom of a shallow casserole pan, spoon in the squash mixture and top with remaining stuffing mix. Bake the casserole at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 to 30 minutes until brown.
