Looking to change up an old standard recipe, Anna Wight makes zucchini bread with lovely and colorful pattypan squash.

I’ve been cooking up all kinds of tasty goodness using produce from the garden this summer. Normally I make a crazy-good zucchini bread, but tonight I decided to change up my recipe a bit and use pattypan squash and pecans instead of zucchini and walnuts. I must say, the results were certainly worth the effort! It’s a squash bread recipe worthy of sharing. Enjoy!
