Fody’s Summer Garden Pasta Ingredients:

  • 1 small yellow squash, thinly sliced into rounds (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 small zucchini, thinly sliced into rounds (about 1/2 cup)
  • ¼ cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 5 oz fresh basil, thinly sliced into ribbons
  • 2 tbsp Fody’s Garlic Infused Olive Oil, divided
  • ¼ cup Fody’s Tomato Basil Sauce
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 lb gluten free spaghetti
  • 1 tbsp salt, for cooking pasta

        Directions for Fody’s Summer Garden Pasta

        1. In a large pasta pot over medium heat, bring well salted pasta water to a boil + cook pasta according to package instructions.
        2. While water is coming to a boil, add 1 tbsp of Fody’s Garlic Infused Olive Oil to a large saucepan over medium heat. Sauteé yellow squash + zucchini until slightly tender but not mushy, about 5-7 minutes.
        3. Once squash + zucchini are fully cooked, remove from the heat until pasta has finished cooking.
        4. Drain pasta but do NOT rinse! Rinsing pasta causes the starches that develop during cooking to wash away, which ultimately does not allow the sauce to cling to the pasta.
        5. Once pasta is drained, add it back to the pot + toss with cherry tomatoes, cooked squash + zucchini, parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes, Fody’s Tomato Basil Sauce and the remaining 1 tbsp of Fody’s Garlic Infused Olive Oil.
        6. Garnish your summer garden pasta with fresh basil and serve.
