SP_Stepf's Summer Kitchen Sink Pasta
SP_Stepf's Summer Kitchen Sink Pasta

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.Submitted by: STEPFANIER

Summer Squash, Carrot and garlic pasta

When visiting my friend Shelly, we took a long walk to the local farmers market and bought a variety of fresh summer squash and carrots. Since I love pan frying veggies and garlic, I thought we'd give this a try. It was super yummy, possibly higher in fat than I would like but you can use less olive oil.Submitted by: DENA914

Summer Ratatouille

This dish just cries "Summer" and it's one of my favorite dishes to make in late July, early August when the Farmer's Market is flush with these favorite vegetables.

If you prefer, you can peel the eggplant, but we love the added texture and flavor. I often make ahead on Sunday for dinner later in the week as the flavors marry and deepen if allowed to sit a day or two. Serve over whole grain pasta for a healthy vegetarian dinner that your kids will love. Submitted by: COPEKAT
