Recipe Group selection 8/25/12.My friend gave me several heirloom tomatoes, fresh off the vine and a pattypan squash. I had planned to prepare this as per the recipe but had to stretch it in order to feed unexpected guests. I prepared the tomatoes as written, then I cut the pattypan squash and sauteed it in a mixture of butter and EVOO with 4 cloves of garlic and half a large sweet onion, diced. When the vegetables were almost ready I added my pancetta, which was diced, to just crisp it a bit and boiled my pasta. At this point I added my tomatoes and the pasta to the pan and tossed it all together. I served it on individual plates with freshly grated parmesan and fresh ground black pepper. I didn't need any additional water. This was very well received, in fact, I thought my son in law was going to lick his plate. Thanks wyattdogster for a great meal that we will have as long as my plant keeps giving me basil and I still can get best quality tomatoes.
