"Light summer dish with minimal prep and cooking! Use fresh pasta and herbs to maximize flavor. I use spinach and garlic linguine when available. Enjoy immediately by itself, with a grilled protein, or bring to a dinner party!"

  1. Whisk olive oil, garlic, 1/2 cup of basil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add zucchini, yellow squash, and tomatoes to the oil mixture and toss to coat.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the linguine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 5 to 10 minutes; drain. Transfer pasta to a serving bowl.
  3. While the pasta is warm, fold in half of vegetable mixture along with 2 tablespoons ricotta cheese, until pasta is coated and vegetables are evenly dispersed. Top with remaining vegetable mixture. Spoon remaining ricotta on top. Sprinkle 1/2 cup chopped basil over the dish. Season with salt and pepper to serve.

Good dinner! I loved the quick prep and minimal heat for these hot, humid summer days! I personally found it too much raw garlic...but I still had seconds :) I couldn't find a 16 oz package of p...

Needs a bit more seasonings: garlic pepper, sea salt, parmesean cheese to taste. Serve with grilled chicken.
