Summer Squash “Pasta”

IMG_4366

Such an easy and forgiving recipe — add thinly sliced eggplant or finely chopped chili pepper along with the summer squash for an extra dimension of flavor.

3 large summer squash, such as zucchini and yellow crookneck, unpeeled (about 3 pounds)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano

¾ cup marinara sauce (preferably homemade)

Parmesan cheese for serving

Using a spiralizer or julienne peeler, strip squash into thin strips. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add squash; season with salt and oregano and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add sauce and continue to cook until vegetables are slightly wilted and warm, about 5 minutes. Serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan.
