1/2 stick unsalted butter

1/2 cup mushrooms, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 

1 shallot, finely chopped

1 bottle white wine 

1/2 lemon, zested and juiced

1/2 lemon, zested and juiced 

2 summer squash

2 zucchini

Olive oil 

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Red chile flakes 

2 teaspoons grated Parmesan

Cherry tomatoes 

1 bunch parsley, finely chopped


  1. Melt the butter in a large saute pan and add the mushrooms, garlic and shallots. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Add some wine (a quarter to half of the bottle), the lemon zest and juice. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes more. Reduce the heat to low to keep the sauce warm until ready to use.
  2. Using a vegetable peeler, carefully peel the summer squash and zucchini until you reach the center, creating pasta-like vegetable noodles.
  3. Heat some olive oil in a large pan set over medium heat. Saute the vegetable noodles 2 to 3 minutes. Add the warm sauce then add some chile flakes and season with salt and pepper. Add in the cheese and some tomatoes, and cook 1 to 2 minutes more. Finish with a few pinches of parsley.
