Summer Cooking: Pasta Primavera Recipe (Sort Of)

This post is one of my no-recipes-posts. It's just an idea for you to use when you need a bit of inspiration. Basically, it's a pasta dish with some sauteed vegetables, some raw vegetables and fresh herbs. Feel free to use whatever produce you have. Not a fan of pasta? Use rice or even boiled potatoes.

When I visited Butler's Orchards earlier this month, they gave me a basket of zucchini, peppers and patty squash from their farm. That's what I used in my Pasta Primavera.

Pasta Primavera

olive oil
zucchini, sliced
peppers, sliced
patty squash sliced
garlic, sliced
salt & pepper
chopped fresh tomatoes
cooked pasta
chopped fresh basil

All you have to do is saute your vegetables in a bit of olive oil with garlic and salt and pepper. Then add fresh tomatoes, cooked pasta and fresh herbs: done!

What are some of your favorite no-recipes dishes?

Hope you all have a great weekend!

This is my favorite sort of thing to eat during the summer. I have a fridge full or veggies and a box of orzo waiting for tomorrow night's dinner.
