1 large egg

2/3 cup finely chopped shallots

1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

2 cups shredded seeded summer squash, (2-3 medium, about 1 pound)

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Beat egg in a large bowl. Stir in shallots, parsley, salt and pepper. Place shredded squash in the center of a clean kitchen towel; gather up the ends and twist to squeeze out any liquid. Add the squash and cheese to the bowl; stir to combine.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pack a 1/3-cup measuring cup with the squash mixture and unmold it into the pan; gently pat it down to form a 3-inch cake. Repeat, making 4 squash cakes. Cook until browned and crispy on the bottom, 3 to 4 minutes. Gently turn the cakes over and transfer the pan to the oven. Bake for 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
