Do Ahead or Delegate: Dice the shallot, peel the garlic, chop the basil, and grate the Parmesan cheese, if necessary.
Tip for roasting the seeds: Like pumpkin seeds, roasted seeds from winter squash make a healthy snack. When you remove the seeds from the squash, remove the pulp and place the seeds on a single layer on a baking sheet. Season them with salt and pepper (or seasonings of your choice) to taste. Lightly bake them for 15 – 20 minutes at 170 degrees or the lowest temperature your oven will go. Roasting them for a short time at a low temperature helps to minimize the damage to their healthy oils.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Add 1 – 2 Tbsp. sliced kalamata olives or capers with the basil and cheese
