For a dish with more dramatic contrasts of color, use only the squash flesh that includes some of the colored skin. In this case, you will need about 8 green and 8 yellow squashes.

  • 80


  • 1 cup firmly packed fresh mint leaves
  • 1/3 cup vegetable stock or canned broth
  • 3 Tbs. grated asiago cheese, plus extra for
      garnish (optional)
  • 2 large garlic cloves, cut up
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 3 yellow summer squashes, about 3/4 lb. total
  • 3 zucchini, about 3/4 lb. total
  • 1/4 cup chopped shallot
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Wine Pairing

This pairs well with crisp, light-bodied white wines like the Domaine Guillerault Fargette, Sancerre from our Wine Club.


In a blender or food processor, combine the mint, stock, 2 Tbs. of the cheese, the garlic and olive oil. Process until smooth. Set the pesto aside.

Using a mandoline or a vegetable peeler, cut the yellow squashes and zucchini into long, narrow ribbons.

Heat a large nonstick fry pan over medium heat. Coat the pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add the shallot and sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the yellow squashes, zucchini and thyme and season generously with salt and pepper. Sauté until the squashes are just tender, about 8 minutes more.

Stir in the mint pesto and heat for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining 1 Tbs. cheese.

Transfer to a warmed serving dish and toss with extra cheese. Serve hot.
