Confession numero deux, I am not a fan of the squash family.
One more - I'm still not hooked.
Last year we were on a mission at the weekly farmers market to pick out veggies or fruits that we have never had before (or haven't had in a long time). We are still on that kick, although now we are getting into things that I likely would NEVER pick out.
But in order to maintain our introduction of new foods to our "healthy" lifestyle mantra I have to bite the bullet, grind my teeth and find ways of making these items as appealing as possible
They were ok, the flavors added I think made me enjoy it more than I would if it were just roasted with salt and pep. Please don't turn your nose up because I do, I bet if you like them you'd like this recipe (I don't even like sweet potatoes). Maybe I need more one on one time with the pattypan to become a lover?
If you're a fan you should try this method, you might enjoy it more than I. The boys ate them all up.
Side note, I think they are really pretty looking fruits. Wait, it does have seeds so its a fruit right?

Roasted Pattypan with Feta
Pretty simple instructions really.
Pattypan squash (as many as you'd like)
Greek seasoning or Greek style salad dressing (a tsp.)
Place your squash in a shallow dish with about 1/2 inch of water. Over med/high heat boil until fork tender.
Scoop out the centers (when cooled mix with the crumbled feta) drizzle with a touch of olive oil and place in a preheated 375F oven for about 20 minutes or until browned.
Add back in the squash/cheese mixture and broil for about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle some Greek seasoning or a touch of Feta/Oregano Salad Dressing (Kraft makes this)
If you have other methods you think I should try to change my perception comment below - I'll trust ya!
