Zucchini and Yellow Squash Ribbons

This surprisingly easy side dish takes ordinary vegetables to extraordinary!  High in fiber and anti inflammatory phytonutrients, zucchini and squash are healthy and delicious alternatives to pasta.  Ribboning the squash retains original flavor and texture without excess moisture.  A light, fresh cherry tomato and shallot finishing sauce brings out all of the flavors and makes the dish seem fancy. In the end, this dish has a beautiful presentation.
