Crazy Summer Squash

When I first saw spiral cut vegetables I was certainly intrigued.  Friends were purchasing them and stores were selling spiral vegetables slicers and spiral sliced vegetables- so, what to do?  Try them.  I am a fan and I think the more interesting ways you can cook and serve vegetables the better.  I took our favorite pasta recipe and instead of pasta, substituted summer squash.  I think it is delicious and fun to eat.  If you haven’t tried spiral cut vegetables, now is the time!

Ingredients
  1. 4 spiral cut zucchini or yellow summer squash
  2. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  3. 1/3 cup pine nuts, toasted
  4. 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  5. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  6. 2 tablespoons Italian parsley, chopped
  7. Fresh ground black pepper
  8. Additional olive oil to drizzle over the squash, if preferred
Instructions
  1. Heat a medium size skillet over medium high heat, add olive oil. When hot, saute squash for approx. 2 - 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, in a medium bowl, toss squash with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
Notes
  1. A great variation is adding sliced cherry tomatoes and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes to the squash when cooking.
  2. You can adjust the amounts depending on the number you are serving - the above recipe serves 2 - 3 vegetable lovers.
