Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and stir for 1 minute. Add pasta, tossing to combine. Add broth. Heat, uncovered, over medium heat for 10 minutes or until liquid is nearly absorbed, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish. Meanwhile, use a spiral vegetable slicer to cut zucchini and yellow squash into long strands. Snip strands into shorter lengths, if desired. Add to spaghetti. Set aside to cool completely. Pull cheese into thin strands; chill until ready to serve.

  • In a small bowl toss together tomatoes, onion, parsley, salt, pepper, remaining oil, and vinegar. Add cheese to spaghetti mixture. Top with tomato mixture and walnuts.

Toasted Walnuts

Toss together the walnuts, 1 teaspoon olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a 350°F oven for 5 minutes until toasted; set walnuts aside.

I cooked it until the liquid was mostly absorbed as instructed... i guess it was more like 12 or 13 minutes.  Came out perfectly. It is a unique cooking method for spaghetti. Reminds me of how you cook the vermicelli along with the rice in rice-a-roni - in oil or butter until it turns golden then water or stock until it cooks down. Anyhow, this is a fabulous recipe.
