Oven-Roasted Patty Pan Squash


Fresh, delicately flavored patty pan squash with just the right amount of savory onion flavor and bright lemon flavor along with a silky buttery sauce to bring out the best in the bright yellow and green vegetable. This would be a great side dish to most any roasted or grilled summertime entrees or meats. You could also sprinkle a bit of finely shaved Parmesan cheese on them for additional flavor and saltiness.

  • 2 pounds patty pan squash

  • 1 small red onion

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Cut squash into 1/2-inch wedges. Slice onion vertically into thin slices. Combine squash, onion, olive oil, coriander, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; toss to coat vegetables evenly in oil and seasonings. Spread out vegetables in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until squash is tender and slightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

  4. Combine melted butter, lemon juice, chives, and lemon zest in the same large bowl; toss cooked squash in butter mixture and serve hot.

Cook's Note:

This would work with any small, firm zucchini or yellow squash.
