Yellow Squash with Kale Pesto

by Editorial Staff

Looking at the plate with the dish, you might think that this is spaghetti with pesto sauce. In fact, this is the lowest-calorie and healthiest “paste” that nature itself has created. Since the pulp of the spaghetti pumpkin has the property of separating into individual fibers after baking, it remains only to extract them with a fork. Fried hazelnuts and kale pesto instead of basil are perfect for this “pasta”. The dish turns out to be dietary, saturated with vitamins, trace elements, and fiber.
