Cut eight 1/2 inch-thick slices of squash; hollow out with spoon to within 1/4 inch of rind.
To make bean bundles, thread stacks of beans through squash pieces as if each piece were a napkin ring.

Bring to a boil over high heat; steam 4 minutes or until beans turn bright green and are crisp-tender.
Meanwhile, heat oil in small skillet over medium-high heat.

Season with salt and pepper.
