1

Lightly toast the pumpkin seeds in a pan over low heat for five minutes, tossing frequently, until fragrant. Transfer the pumpkin seeds to a bowl to cool off a bit.

2

Use a grater to grate the squash lengthwise, one side at a time (stop once you get to the seeded part, then turn the squash to work on the next side).

3

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and cook fettuccine until al dente. Drain and set aside.

4

In a blender, combine the coriander, jalapeño, garlic, lime juice, fine Himalayan salt and cooled pumpkin seeds. While running the blender, drizzle in the olive oil.

5

Toss the cooked pasta and gem squash with the pesto and serve.
