May 24: Pesto "Pasta"

Mills came over right when I was starting dinner. She helped by making the squash into ribbons. I think she did the harder job. I just made the sauce.
I found the meal quite satisfying and tasty, while different at the same time. It was another recipe I've been meaning to try for a while. And with 15g of carbs per serving, I don't think it messed too badly with Dad's diet either.
