This was pretty good, but I think I needed more zucchini as I had lots of sauce, kind of a pain to cut up the squash though. But tasted good.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the zucchini and squash lengthwise into 1/8" strips on a mandoline.(If you don't have a mandoline, the backside of a spatula shaped cheese slicer works just as well). Be sure the slices are not stuck together.
  2. Heat the olive oil over high heat in a large skillet.
  3. Just before olive oil begins to smoke, add the cut squash and stir.
  4. Keep stirring for 3-4 minutes, or until squash strips are barely wilted.
  5. Add the white wine, garlic, salt and pepper.
  6. Toss in the basil and tomatoes.
  7. Stir in tomato sauce, heavy cream, and half of the Parmasen cheese.
  8. Bring to a boil.
  9. Serve immediately with the remaining Parmesan sprinkled over the top. Enjoy!
