Ingredients:

2 garlic cloves
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons basil, finely chopped
2 teaspoons chives, thinly sliced
pinch cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons walnuts, toasted, finely chopped

Instruction:

To make Boursin cheese peel garlic cloves put in boiling water 3 minutes. Drain, put through a garlic press and combine in a medium bowl with cream cheese, basil, chives, cayenne pepper and walnuts. Set aside for 1 hour to blend flavors. Taste for seasoning, add salt if necessary. Can be made 1 day ahead, covered, refrigerated. Bring to room temperature before using.

Trim stem end of squash. Place on work surface. Using a vegetable peeler or mandoline, cut into thin lengthwise ribbons. Discard first and last slices.

Spread approximately 2 teaspoons cheese on each slice. Starting at one end, roll up into a cylinder. Place upright on a platter and serve immediately.
