How can you say no to these eye candies? They look like little jewels. It’s impossible for me at least.

I got these gorgeous baby patty pan squash from our local vegetable shop. They are easy to cook, and they are great source of vitamins A, C and magnesium.

There are so many ways to enjoy this lovely summer vegetable. The easiest way probably is to slice the squash and grill or saute in a frying pan.img_9965
