Yesterday I spent the later half of my day fertilizing all my plants and puttering a bit in the garden. The patio also needed some attention after all the hoopla of the party. Matt was here so he moved our new little fountain (that arrived after the Open House) to a place we had chosen on the side patio. I then got into moving and redoing lights around the gazebo's.
I knew I needed to make something and use my tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, red peppers & squash from the garden.
I had an organic whole chicken I knew I could throw on the grill. I was feeling rather lazy, again. What could I do that was easy and would use my fresh veg? Putting everything into a pasta always seems the easiest way to come up with a fresh and healthy dish!
I pulled out a pan and put some olive oil in it and stared chopping my onion, bell pepper, red pepper, onion and garlic.
|Cooked on low heat until tender.|
|Cut up my squash & added to aromatics. Added salt & pepper and some Zaatar|
|When the pasta was about ready I added my lovely fresh tomatoes.|
|Cooked them down just a bit. So all the flavors could come together.|
|Pasta getting ready to get in on the party.|
|Pasta in. I had a blend of shredded Parmesan, Asiago, Fontina & Mild Provalone Cheeses, threw a couple handfuls in & put some fresh chopped Basil & Marjoram & we were ready to go!|
I hope this will inspire you to get in the kitchen and create!
And honey, yes I wrote it down!
