Ingredients

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  • Heat the oil and butter in a 10-inch straight-sided sauté pan over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot and the butter has melted, add the squash, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the squash is lightly browned and tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the squash to a serving bowl. Add the parsley, walnuts, and lemon zest, and toss to combine. Serve immediately.

    To save time, I bought pre-cut squash and cut each piece in half to size correctly. Much easier and faster than struggling with a whole uncut squash! I sauteed two shallots in the oil and butter to soften them. At the end I tossed the lemon, walnuts and parsley directly into the pan. This recipe deserves higher than 5 stars. It was outstanding.

    I thought this combination seemed unusual, but since it already had a lot of 5 star reviews I decided to give it a try. It was delicious and very easy to make!
