This is a wonderful way to use up some of summer’s bounty, and enjoy a delicious vegetarian dinner.



1/2 pound whole wheat linguine
2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
approx. 2 cups Bennings Green Tint Patty Pan Squash (or other summer squash), seeded and sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 shallot, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 extra large tomato (preferably garden fresh or heirloom), roughly chopped into large pieces
1 Tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated, plus more for garnish
56 basil leaves, thinly sliced


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the linguine and cook until al dente. Drain, reserving about a cup of the pasta water.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet. Sauté squash, bell pepper, garlic and shallot seasoned with salt, pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes until veggies are tender and the squash is getting golden brown. Add in the tomato and vinegar and allow it to melt down into a thick sauce-like consistency.

Add the cooked pasta into the pan with the veggies, and stir in pasta water a little at a time to get the sauce loose enough to coat the pasta. Sprinkle in the Parmesan and toss together. Top with sliced basil and enjoy!
