Here's a great way to use summer's abundant squashes. Toasted pine nuts and briny kalamata olives make this salad a standout. Prep and Cook Time: about 1 1/4 hours. Notes: Ingredients can be prepped and pasta cooked a day ahead of time and chilled (add 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil to the cooked pasta). Toss everything together just before serving.
This versatile side dish is so simple and quick that I had to share it. Grilling the colorful veggies in a foil packet means one less dish to wash, but I sometimes stir-friy the mixture on the stovetop. —Karen Anderson, Fair Oaks, California Skip links
