For the pesto, combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. You may have to add an extra drizzle of oil. Salt to your liking.
Zoodle your zucchinis or summer squashes however is convenient. Place the green beans and kabocha squash together in a steamer and steam for 6 minutes. The squash will be just right and the beans will still be bright green.
While you steam, toast the pine nuts in a 400 degree oven or toaster oven for 5 minutes, until they begin to turn golden.
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the pine nuts. Stir the pesto through well and taste.
