Well, I think it is about time for some new recipes!
First, I'll post one of our favorite summer-time dinners. If your garden is overloaded with squash, zucchini and tomatoes right about now, (or your neighbor's is), this is a great dish to make. I'm not really sure exactly how I came up with it, I just know there is something magical about the flavor combinations- it's like music in your mouth!
It starts with 9x13 pan full of cooked spiral pasta. I use 3/4 of a regular sized box. It has a creamy sauce but it's made of sour cream, not mayo.
After you have your pasta cooked, (I do mine in the microwave), and in the pan add the following:
3/4 to 1 c. sour cream - I never actually measure, just a big scoop out of the tub with a serving spoon.
Sprinkle entire surface with a generous amount of
Dried or fresh Dill Weed
The hot pasta will melt the sour cream, and you can stir it all together. It will look like this:
Now for the squash. Slice 2 small each or one large each of yellow squash and zucchini. Layer on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Drizzle entire surface with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Broil at 500º till they are tender and just start to get a little brown around the edges, maybe 10 min. or so.
When they are cooked, layer them in the pan on top of the noodles.
