Zucchini Pasta with Mushrooms and Oven Dried Tomatoes


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 8 green squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed (divided)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 5 plum tomatoes, cut into ¼ inch thick rounds
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • Sugar
  • 2 pounds of Crimini mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • Pesto
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream (optional)


Using a julienne peeler, peel 8 green squash vertically to make spaghetti.

Sauté 2 cloves garlic in olive oil for 1 minute and add squash. Add salt and pepper and cook on a low flame 5-7 minutes. Close fire and add pesto to squash. If using heavy cream, add it to pesto.  Set aside and let cool to room temperature.

Oven dried tomatoes: Slice tomatoes in rounds and place on tray with olive oil, salt, pepper, basil, crushed garlic and a sprinkle of sugar. Bake uncovered at 300°F for 2½-3 hours.

Roasted mushrooms: Clean Crimini mushrooms with a dry paper towel. Cut tough stems and slice mushroom in half. Place them on a tray and add pepper, fresh rosemary and olive oil. Roast uncovered at 400°F for 40 minutes.

When mushrooms are roasted, remove from oven, add salt and set aside.  Place squash mixture at room temperature around the circumference of a round dish.  Leave room in the center and place the mushrooms.  Top the squash with oven dried tomatoes and serve.


Oven dried tomatoes can be made beforehand, frozen on a tray and stored in a plastic bag.  When using, take out of bag and lay flat on a plate.

    Looks awesome! But can you clarify recipe?

    1. see ref to “pesto”: when/how is this made? And how much is needed?
    2. see Oven-dried tomatoes instrux: how much olive oil? Also Roasted mushrooms instrux: how much olive oil?
    should orig 1 tbs be divided, 1/3 for squash cooking, 1/3 each for mushrooms and tomatoes? Doesn’t seem enough.

    • You can buy pesto or make it with your favorite herbs and nuts, here is my favorite pesto, but I usually use whatever I have – http://www.joyofkosher.com/recipe/walnut-pesto/

      Robin hopefully will answer, but I would just use olive oil as needed by site, and add if need more. For roasting you can just drizzle to cover. Let us know how it is.
