Notes

If you are going to double this recipe, don't double the steaming time for the squash. Just increase the steaming to 15 minutes rather than 20. At 20 minutes, the squash starts to turn to mush and nobody wants mushy squash.
Make sure you are using fresh shaved parmesan. Buying a tub of grated or shaved parmesan will not work. The grated is too dense and the store shaved parmesan is too thick. The secret to the crust is using a microplane or fine grater on the parmesan.
These patty pan reheat beautifully the next day in a 400F oven. So good.
