These are the kinds of “fast-foods” I like. Ooooh, good! Black Bean Pasta from Costo topped with a fresh tomato sauce I made and these delightful small summer squashes (zucchini and patty pan), also from Costco.
Here’s what I did:
- I put some garlic into a pan with extra virgin olive oil in the bottom of it and sautéed briefly. I added cut up tomatoes, salt, fresh basil and some crushed red pepper, put a lid on it and cooked gently ’til it became a nice “stew” of tomatoes.
- While the tomatoes cooked, I boiled the pasta ’til just al dente (I put a little extra virgin olive oil and salt in the water).
- I put some garlic, salt and basil into a saute pan with extra virgin olive oil, added the mini-squashes and cooked ’til just softened.
- Finally, I put it all together, pasta on the bottom, then the tomato sauce, topped with the squashes. Delish!
