Summer Veggie Pasta
I was not aware that I missed the entire month of August. It certainly was not for the lack of cooking, dining and enjoying! The rainy summer produced a beautiful lawn and flowers to provide the backdrop for several outdoor meals.
August dinners also included wonderful farmer's markets' vegetables. Here is one of several that we enjoyed.
Appetizer: Watermelon Squares with Feta. Watermelon and feta have become one of my favorite summer combinations. Here I just prepared a small dish for us to enjoy while I prepared the meal.
Entree: Mixed Veggies and Pasta. Strips of zucchini, broccoli and red pepper and green beans were sauteed with diced garlic in olive oil with the onion and asparagus tips. When they were done the cherry tomatoes and fresh basil were added and stirred in. The cooked pasta was topped with the cooked veggies and shredded Parmesan.
More summer vegtable dishes will follow.
