Pattypan Squash Braised With Onion, Tomato and Chorizo

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by chiclet

Summer squash was the featured ingredient in last week's "The Way We Eat" column in the NY Times Magazine. At this time of year you can never have too many squash recipes, so although I haven't tried it, I thought I'd share this one with you. I can't wait to try this one with SoyRizo!

Thanks for this - a really interesting recipe. I suppose the quality will always be down to how good the chorizo is - fortunately, mine was delicious! I didn't have any young patty-pan - they were about 4 inches diameter, so I quartered them and scraped the seeds out and they turned out great. I also used a can of chopped tomoatoes, instead of fresh.
