Spaghettini with Squash Recipe

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.

Meanwhile, in a large fry pan over medium heat, combine the olive oil and speck and sauté until the speck is crispy, about 7 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté until it just begins to turn golden, about 3 minutes.

Add the squash and toss well to coat the strands with the oil. Season with the 1/4 tsp. salt and a generous grinding of pepper. Increase the heat to medium-high and cook until the squash is just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the basil and remove from the heat. Cover the sauce to keep warm.

Add the pasta to the boiling water, stir and cook until al dente, about 9 minutes or according to the package instructions. Drain the pasta, reserving about 1/2 cup (4 fl. oz./125 ml) of the cooking water. Transfer the pasta to the pan with the sauce. Using tongs or a pasta fork, toss gently to combine. Add a splash or two of the pasta-cooking water to loosen the sauce, if needed. Sprinkle with the cheese and toss again. Season with salt and pepper.

Divide the pasta among shallow bowls, spoon any remaining sauce on top and serve immediately. Serves 4 to 6.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rust very easily I bought this peeler a week ago, used it once, and dried immediately and still rusted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peeler I have been using this peeler for years. I always buy more than one. I use it to peel orange and grapefruit. I have recommended it to friends. Love it. The only thing that before they use to come in colors and now they only have it transparent plastic. I would like them to be brought back in set of three as they were before and in colors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A share from a friend and kitchen necessity... and must have--Butternut squash is a breeze with little or no effort! I wouldn't live without and haven't tried the more stylish ones as a result! You can't get the old rhythm as the prior potato pealer but change is good if the result is effortless! I also give them as gifts to even "mother-in-laws" that love them--just let them know that they are VERY SHARP and to be careful! I just replenished my supply by 10 at the affordable pricing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from complete waste of money I purchased this because it was the top rated peeler from cook's illustrated. What I received must be defective. It doesn't peel at all and I almost cut a finger struggling with it. It honestly feels like I was sold a knock off. I don't want to pay the postage to return a $4 item so won't be returning it. This was my first experience purchasing online from WS and it will be my last. Would have been much better off buying locally from brick and mortar store in case needed to return.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Peeler at a great Price I have own this Peeler for a few years now and love it. I always. I also given one to my mom and she loves it and has given multiple one to friends as gifts. its easy to use and its good for people who may have arthritis or any other problems with there hands because it has a bigger handle then others so its easy to hold on to. And well you cant beat the price of it either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best cheap peeler ever I'm on my second one the first lasted for years in the restaurants and finally walked away. So I got another and it's great, butternut squash and slightly thicker skins can be peeled.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Rust Bomb I have another peeler just like this one made by a different company and I adore it. I bought this one thinking I'd have two & it would be so handy. Nope. This is cheap, cheap junk. Rusted immediately even though it barely got wet and was dried immediately. The peeler design is fine, the quality is an abomination.

  • I purchased 3 of these peelers and the blades on all 3 have rusted after a few uses. Is this normal and are they still safe to use?

    Asked by: MJA1
    HI MJA1, Carbon steel does not typically have enough chromium to form a chromium oxide layer, allowing oxygen to bond with the iron which results in iron oxide, or rust. A bit of rust will not harm you. Rust is basically iron oxide, a rather benign substance in small quantities.
