Calabaza Primavera

¼ cup Roasted Garlic Olive oil*
¼ cup of Pine Nuts
¼ cup Sun Dried tomatoes
¼ cup Whole Roasted Garlic Cloves
½ cup Roasted Cremini Mushrooms*
½ cup Chopped Charred Broccolini*
¼ cup White wine
⅛ cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
7 oz Fresh Zucchini Noodles
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup Shaved Asiago

In a small or medium skillet, heat Roasted Garlic Olive Oil. Add Pine Nuts, Sun dried tomatoes, Roasted Garlic Cloves, Roasted cremini mushrooms, and Charred Broccolini to pan. Toss everything in the hot garlic oil and allow pan to get sizzling hot.

Once pan is piping hot, deglaze with 2 oz of white wine and appx 1 oz of lemon juice. Toss veggies again and let sauce lightly reduce.

Add in 7 oz of fresh Zucchini noodle, lightly toss, and remove from the heat. *Don’t worry if the noodles don’t look completely done. The Zucchini noodles will continue to cook with the heat of the veggies.
