Pasta With Summer Squash and Zucchini

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Gingernut

Another simple but tasty recipe from Leanne Ely's Menu Mailers ( I love a quick, healthy meal especially when it gets me compliments from my hubby. I used wholemeal spirals instead of the linguine the original called for, and simplified the instructions to avoid dirtying an extra pan unnecessarily.

Tasty and fairly quick using the ingredients I had! I used one onion (2 seemed like a lot, but it shrinks so it probably would have been fine) and even added some diced green bell peppers. I didn't have fresh basil, so I used dried herb mix. I took to a picnic so just ended up mixing pasta, sauces, and cheeses altogether. Cheese makes it creamier and gives it more taste, but this recipe would taste good without cheese as well.

  1. In a large skillet, saute zucchini, yellow squash, onion and garlic in olive oil until vegetables are almost tender. Add basil and spaghetti sauce and stir until warmed through.
  2. Spoon sauce over hot linguini. Toss to coat well. Top with cheeses.
