I'm back in the land of 3G. I've watched my adorable niece star as Violet in a community theater production of Willie Wonka. I've hosted a dinner party for 20. I've driven the girls to tennis. I'm on my 47th load of laundry. Ahhhh..... Summer is so relaxing!
If you are enjoying summer as much as I am, this is the perfect summer meal. I knew I had to try it the minute I saw it in last month's Martha Stewart Living Magazine. It's the stuff of which dreams are made. Throw some fresh ingredients in a pot, boil for 12 minutes and Voila! Dinner is ready!
And when I say dinner, I mean that the fresh flavors really come to life. A glug of EVOO combined with the starchy pasta water makes a delightful sauce. You won't be disappointed. I promise!
Can you hear it? The Farmer's Market is calling!
