Zucchini Summer Pasta

One word: BLAND. This was like airplane food. And since I'm not the best cook I didn't know what to add to it to make it better. As if that weren't bad enough, it made a ton.

Oh well, at least I got my veggies in...right?

"This is a fast, cheap, warm, summer main dish -- angel hair, yellow squash and zucchini in a tomato sauce -- and a great way to use up your summer squash. Top with cheddar cheese!"

Ingredients

  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 zucchinis, thickly sliced
  • 2 yellow squash, thickly sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound angel hair pasta
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes

Directions

  1. In large skillet, over medium heat, saute garlic and onion in butter and oil about 2 minutes. Reduce heat, and layer zucchini and yellow squash slices on top of onion and garlic. Add salt and pepper, cover and steam 10 minutes, or until squash is tender.
  2. While vegetables are steaming, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. Add the crushed tomatoes to the zucchini mixture, stir and heat slightly, but do not cook the tomatoes. Serve the zucchini sauce over the pasta.
