My kitchen is packed to the gills with produce right now. It’s just that time of year. John’s mom came last weekend and brought all kinds of stuff, and I’ve picked up my share here and there around town. It’s kind of nice, because I can look at all these seasonal recipes that come online and say, “Yup, have that, have that, have that, have that …” and realize it’s because all these seasonal summer recipes are made of all the same stuff. You just add grilled chicken, or pasta, or whatever.
Here: If you don’t have it, pick up a yellow squash, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, onions, garlic. Saute it all in butter or olive oil until it’s a little wilty, a little brown. Make some pasta. Or grilled chicken. Or both. Toss it all with a generous amount of Parmesan, salt and pepper.
Also would be good: Sweet corn, peppers, basil, oregano, lemon juice, zest
If you don’t like all that loosey goosei-ness, here’s a recipe, and a pretty photo to boot: Broken Lasagna With Zucchini-Tomato Sauce
