Meatless Monday - Veggie Saute and Pasta

This time of year there is no excuse not to go meatless at least once a week. The produce is popping and whether at the farmers market or in your own garden, NOW is the time to take advantage of the bounty of the season.

With such pristine ingredients, I want to do as little as possible to them, and present them simply. In this case simple is good.

Crooked neck squash, zucchini, chilies, shallots, tomatoes and basil from the garden.

Garlic, olive oil, pasta, pecorino romano, salt and pepper from the larder.
A little boiled water, some hot oil and dinner is ready in 18 minutes. Feels good doesn't it?

Quick, light and delicious. Perfect for a weekday meal.

Until next time, Eat Well & Keep Digging!

    I completely agree Mark, take good ingredients and mess with them as little as possible


    Why I garden, Thank you! That does sound good, Maybe I'll try that on a non-Monday!

  5. Well, that's given me inspiration for tonight, thank you xxx

  6. With all of the vegetables ripening, this is a favorite time of the year for me, a big pasta fan. Yours is a winning combination, David.
