If you've learned anything from hanging around the blog, you know that I'm all about simple and quick recipes. I also tend to throw together items I have available and create my own recipes. I'd have to say that pasta is my go-to meal!
Last week, I had two small zucchinis that needed to be used, so I decided to make…you guessed it. Pasta. :)
I washed and sliced the squash. (Didn't think to take a photo.)
Then I pulled out jarred pasta sauce. We had recently tried the store brand (Ingles Markets) and REALLY liked this Garden Combo variety. It had small chunks of zucchini in it, which is what gave me the idea for this sauce when I saw those two lone squash needing to be used.
I decided that kalamata olives would add a nice contrast to the sweet, tomatoey sauce.
Cook your sliced/chopped zucchini in a little olive oil and garlic.
Then add in the olives until heated through.
Pour in your pasta sauce and heat until bubbly.
Pour over spaghetti noodles or any other pasta. Top with parmesan! (The photo is blurry because it was steaming.) :)
Enjoy a fresh, quick, healthy dinner--Missy style. :)
