Don’t let this photo fool you…that is not pasta! Its zucchini and summer squash that is sliced into long ribbons with a potato peeler. Super easy and cooks fast! Then all you need to do is add some fresh lemon juice, some fresh parsley or cilantro, salt and pepper and you have a quick and easy side dish to make use of your summer gardens!
Here’s the quick and easy recipe:
2 summer squash, end trimmed
2 zucchini, ends trimmed
juice of half a lemon

Using a potato peeler, slice both summer squash and zucchini into long ribbon like strips. Heat about 1 tbsp of olive oil in a medium skillet.
