SP_Stepf's Summer Kitchen Sink Pasta
Very Good 4.4/5
(34 ratings)

Maybe I should have called this my "Summer Farmers Market Pasta." It's full of the vegetables I brought home from the farmers market on Saturday. Like many of my recipes, it can be altered based on what you've got on hand. I almost threw in some Swiss chard (my green of choice these days) and some brilliant yellow crookneck squash, but I decided to save those for another day and another dish.

Roasted Buckwheat Breakfast Cereal
Good 3.7/5
(12 ratings)

Cold, it crunches and pops in your mouth with a bold, nutty taste. Hot, it becomes smooth and more mellow. Either way, buckwheat (kasha) is a healthy, hearty breakfast.

Garden Fresh Lasagna
Very Good 4.4/5
(32 ratings)

I love rich, cheesy lasagna, but in the summer when vegetables are at their peak, cheese overwhelms the dish. Adding plenty of fresh vegetables to your regular lasagna for a healthy, light summer supper.
