I am so in love with summer veggies. I have been eating so many fruits and vegetables this summer. And tonight’s dinner was no exception.

A guy that works with us brings in a lot of zucchini, summer squash and those funky patty pans. He also brings in cucumbers and tons of fresh lettuce. Today he brought in zucchini and I just knew I would be making this dish. It’s got a great tangy taste, and it’s a very easy dish to make.

Recipe follows:


Angel Hair Pasta and Veggies Vinaigrette

1 cup zucchini or yellow summer squash, quartered and sliced

1/2 medium green pepper, sliced in strips and cut in half

1 clove garlic, minced

1 serving of angel hair pasta, or any pasta of choice

2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

1/4 teaspoon dried dill

1/8 teaspoon salt

Dash of pepper

12 grape tomatoes

Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain well.

In a large skillet, cook the squash, pepper and garlic in oil, until crisp.

Add pasta, vinegar, dill, salt and pepper to vegetable mixture and mix well.

Add the tomatoes, and cook until fully heated. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over top.
