Beautiful Butterflies

Makes: 4 servings
Prep 10 mins Cook 15 mins
Beautiful Butterflies
  • 6  small or medium crookneck squash
  • 3  tablespoons  Country Crock® Spread
  • 2  tablespoons  finely chopped garlic
  • 12  baby carrots
  • 4  chives, cut into 24 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2  tablespoons  finely chopped assorted fresh herbs (parsley, mint, tarragon, dill, chives)
  • 1/8  teaspoon  of salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  of pepper

1. Slice fat part of squash into 24 slices (save the necks for another recipe).

2. Melt Country Crock® Spread in large skillet. Add garlic and cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Add squash and carrots, saute until tender, about 7 minutes.

3. Arrange carrots on serving dish or individual plates. Place two squash rounds on either side of carrots. Using a toothpick, poke two holes in the tops of each carrot and insert chive pieces as "antennae."

4. Sprinkle remaining herbs on squash "wings." Add salt and pepper.
