I've heard that Costata Romanesco makes great dried squash. Has anyone experimented with drying other squash/ zucchini varieties?

I did some sugarloaf delicata this winter. Worked out pretty well, plus I dropped my storage space for them from a shelf to a couple of jars!

Tromboncino and Yellow Crookneck (sliced into coins) dried really well for me in the past.  Fordhook zucchini was good shredded, but not as good when spiralized into noodles or sliced.  Patty pan types (Bennings and some yellow variety) weren't great either.
