Greek Pasta

I shared this on my Facebook page a few weeks ago - and I immediately had people asking for the recipe! Of course, I didn't make them wait - I private messaged it to them because I'm nice like that! ;) Seriously, I believe recipes and good food are meant to be shared - right?!

With summer in full swing in the Phoenix area, I wanted something that was light and meatless. Truthfully, that's been a lot of nights lately! I don't know about you, but heavy meals some times make me feel sick in the summer - especially with all this heat! Do you like lighter meals when it's hot? My family sure does!

My wonderful neighbor, Alyce, likes to bring over some of the veggies from her garden and I am more than happy to put them to use! :) Since we just move into our house in April, we didn't get a garden started this year - we wanted to see how we would actually use our property before committing to a spot for the garden! Next year, I've already got it all planned out though! ;) 

The best part of this dish besides being super cheap, (and it's even more economical if you have a nice neighbor like Alyce or if you grow your own stuff) - is I almost always have all of the ingredients! 

If you're looking for an economical, quick, light, meatless and easy dinner idea .... look no further! This can be thrown together in no time! 

P.S. Feel free to use fresh spinach if you prefer - I bet it's just as great!

  11. This looks really good and would adapt well to whatever was growing in the garden. My squash is currently producing prolifically (as it does every year) and if I even whisper one more time "Honey, we're having steamed squash with dinner tonight" there may be an uprising at the Taylor Household. LOL But cubed squash would would beautifully in this dish. Hummm... Cover me, I'm goin' in! (Visiting from Wonderful Wednesday Hop)
