Sautéed Ramps, Sugar Snap Peas and Pattypan Squash
Yes, we know: another ramp recipe. But we guarantee the guy at the greenmarket stand selling these get-'em-while-you-can onion/garlic hybrids hasn't made them this way (most everyone either pickles them or sautés them with pasta).
Why this dish isn't the same old:
Truly minimal cooking time—just five minutes in a hot pan—ensures the ramps retain their bite.
The supporting cast:
Sugar snap peas, pea tendrils, walnuts and pattypan squash (yellow squash works fine too).
