Even better if you quick saute the zucchini in a little olive oil/butter over medium high heat until they get a little caramelization, but still firm. Then toss with pesto (preferably homemade)...

Serviceable, but pesto deserves better. Use it on the Spinach and Feta Pita Bake instead.

As if this wasn't quick and easy enough, microwaving made it even more so. I used both zucchini and yellow squash and homemade pesto I had frozen during the summer. The homemade stuff can't be ...

Is it OK to give something so simple 5 stars? I had a leftover zucchini and just wanted a new idea for seasoning it simply. I peeled and cut the zucchini into chunks, then put it in my steamer f...

This was great, I added some extra olive oil at the end and served it over spinach linguine as a main dish... Everyone loved it, and it was filling!

Really yummy side dish! I never would have though to put pesto with zuccini, but it goes really well. The nice bit of parm. goes really well too :)

This was quite good. I kept the calories down by making a quick pesto of steamed broccoli, fresh basil, a little low fat tofu, a tablespoon of pine nuts and a dash of olive oil and seasonings.

i have made this so many times i have lost count! can't believe i had missed writing the review. just be sure to drain you squash well......its a 10 in the world of 5's !!

This was a very fast side dish to make. I added a dash of garlic and pepper to kick it up a notch. This is a great recipe for that leftover garden squash. Easy and delicious.
