In our home for as long as I can remember Sunday Night is Pasta night. Growing up I remember my dad making sauce all day on Sundays. I remember him chopping ingredients for sauce or gravy after breakfast. The delicious smell of fresh ingredients filled our home as his sauce or gravy cooked until it was dinner time. Sunday night pasta night is a tradition I brought into my own family. I love creating new healthy dishes for my family with fresh ingredients like this Summer Pasta Recipe.
Some Sunday I, unfortunately, don’t have time to cook sauce all day like my father did. With Little Dude having sports and games. I look to incorporate different fresh ingredients into my dishes. I love adding in fresh vegetables. I found some beautiful looking organic zucchini and summer squash at our neighborhoods Farmers Market. I thought they would be perfect for this Summer Pasta Recipe.
I partnered with Barilla Pasta and Walmart to bring you this sponsored post. We are a health conscious family hubs and I both work out, and Little Dude is very involved in sports.
