  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 large handful toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
  • Parmesan or Romano cheese, grated (optional)
  • 1 package pasta, cooked


Toss basil, garlic, oil and half of walnuts into a food processor and pulse until well blended. Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet over high heat and cook squash until beginning to brown.  Toss squash together with pesto, pasta and remaining nuts. Serve sprinkled with cheese, if desired.
