Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. In a food processor, pulse parsley, walnuts, garlic, Parmesan, lemon zest, and lemon juice until combined, about 10 seconds. With machine running, add olive oil in a slow, steady stream and process until a paste forms. Season pesto with salt and pepper and transfer to a small bowl.

  • Clean and lightly oil hot grill. Season squash with salt and pepper. Working in batches, grill squash, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a platter and serve with pesto.
