Pesto Squash Noodles and Spaghetti with Burst Cherry Tomatoes from Cookie + Kate
Showing 3 out of 6 Steps
To make the pesto: In a food processor, combine the arugula/basil, cooled pecans, Parmesan, garlic and salt. Pulse while drizzling in the olive oil. Stir in the lemon juice and season to taste with freshly ground black pepper.
Toast the pecans: In a large skillet over medium heat, toast the pecans, while stirring frequently, until they're nice and fragrant, about 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the pecans to a bowl to cool.
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cut off the tough ends of the squash and remove any discolored skin with a paring knife. Use a julienne peeler (or regular peeler) to slice the squash lengthwise, one side at a time. Stop once you get to the seeded part, then turn the squash to work on the next side.
