Spotlight summer squash in this tasty egg dish.

"The beauty of this recipe is that the faux pasta noodles can be stored raw and when they're heated, the roasted tomatoes create a nutrient-rich sauce," says Katzie Guy-Hamilton, chef and director of food and beverage at Equinox. "A sprinkle of parmesan and you have an Italian spin on summer veggie kuku."
