Preparation -- 15 minutes

tip: you can also use any other kind of zucchini, a summer squash has a light sweet and nutty flavour.  

Rinse the summer squash and divide into thin strips, you can use a chef's knife or spiralizer for this. Roast the almond shavings in a dry skillet and transfer them to a small bowl so you can use the skillet again.

Peel the garlic cloves divide them into halves, no need to finely chop them. Heat a dash of olive oil in the large skillet along with the halved garlic.

Let it simmer on low heat for a few minutes and then remove the garlic.

Finishing the pan-fried cheesy summer squash  -- 5 minutes

Add summer squash to the skillet and cook for a few minutes on high heat. Season with pepper and salt and stir in half of the grated cheese.

Add a pinch of chili flakes, be careful because the squash will absorb the flavour easily. Serve this delicious and easy side dish with more grated cheese and almond shavings. Enjoy!
