Summer squash skins with garlic bread crumbs

  • Time cooking time: 15-20 minutes
  • Yield serves 4

Ingredients

    Olive oil cooking spray
    4 cloves garlic, chopped
    1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
    3 1/2 pounds zucchini or combination of zucchini and yellow crookneck squash, each no longer than 6 inches
    1 tablespoon butter
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Preparation

    1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a small baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray. Combine garlic and bread crumbs and spread evenly on the baking sheet. Spray again with olive oil cooking spray and bake 10 to 15 minutes or until nicely browned. Stir a few times to toast evenly.
    2. Meanwhile, trim ends of the squash. Holding each squash upright (vertically,) slice off the skin into long, narrow slices all around. (You should have about 1 1/4 pounds.) Cut slices into long strips, about 1/4 inch wide. Use the inside pulp for Zucchini Pancakes.
    3. Put butter and oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. Add squash strips, raise heat to high, and toss. Cook, tossing occasionally, until squash are just beginning to soften but are still slightly crunchy, about 5 minutes.
    4. Add garlic bread crumbs, and parsley, toss, and serve.
