I made this dish as one of the recipes for a charity event to benefit Place of Hope. We received amazing vegetables as donations and I thought this dish would be perfect. I wish we had grabbed a photo of my friend Suhiel spiralizing an entire box of zucchini. You can add poultry or seafood to make this dish hearty or enjoy as is for a perfect side dish or vegetarian option. Enjoy!

  • Arrange butternut squash into a single layer over the prepared pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  • Bake squash in the preheated oven, turning halfway, until browned and softened, about 35 minutes.

  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add zucchini, garlic, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until zucchini is tender, about 4 minutes. Mix in baked squash and lemon juice until just combined. Top with Parmesan cheese.

Editor's Note:

Cut zucchini into noodles/ribbons/spirals using a spiralizer (fitted with the large shredding blade).
