Draining the hot cooked pasta over the squash ribbons softens the vegetables just enough to keep their fresh texture yet combine well with the pasta. Adding the red onion to the pasta in the last 2 minutes of cooking removes its harsh bite.

How to Make It

Step 1

Shave squashes into thin strips using a vegetable peeler; place in a colander. Bring a large saucepan filled with water to a boil. Add pasta; cook 6 minutes. Add red onion; cook 2 minutes. Drain pasta mixture over squash in colander.

Step 2

Return pan to medium-high heat. Add milk and flour; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute or until slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Stir in cream; cook for 1 minute. Add pasta mixture, stirring to coat. Stir in the herbs, salt, and pepper. Serve immediately.
