Pan-Seared Baby Patty Pan Squash With Sautéed Spinach
This is a delicious and very quick side dish with a little punch from the seasoning and the freshness of the ingredients. It was so good I couldn’t stop eating it.

Patty Pan SquashIf the patty pan (aka scalloped) squash is difficult to find in the grocery store many farmer’s markets have them. If you can't find them, any summer squash will do. I also have made this recipe using yellow squash and zucchini and it was still quite delicious.

Sriracha salt can be found at Costco or you could just substitute crushed hot chili peppers.
