Directions

1. Place squash and carrot in a colander above the sink or over a large bowl and toss with 1 teaspoon salt. Allow vegetables to rest for 10 minutes, then squeeze gently with your hands to drain off as much excess moisture as possible. Do not rinse.

2. While vegetables are rendering water, toast almonds in a large dry skillet over medium heat, tossing occasionally, until fragrant and lightly browned. Transfer to a plate and let cool.

3. Using the same skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and pepper flakes and cook, stirring regularly, until fragrant and browned, about 2 minutes. Add carrot and cook for 2 minutes. Then add squash and cook, tossing occasionally, until crisp tender, about 5 minutes (the squash shouldn’t go limp). Add Parmesan and season with salt and pepper. Finally, fold in almonds and serve.
