8 very small pattypan squash
2-4 Tablespoons olive oil
a pinch of salt (optional)
Wash squash. Slice off stem and discard.
Slice into circles about 1/2 inch thick.
Pile squash circles in a large baking dish.
Drizzle with olive oil and use your hands to
completely coat each piece with oil. (You have
to work quickly because the squash is absorbing
the oil as fast as you can pour.) Arrange squash
into staggered layers in pan.
Place pan in cold oven. Set time bake
or turn on to 350 degrees and bake for 1 hour.
Turn off oven and allow squash to continue
cooking with residual heat for up to 1 hour.
Add salt, if desired. Serve hot out of
the oven or at room temperature. Cover and
