I don’t know about you, but as much as I enjoy cooking, I prefer quick and easy dinners in the summer. I mean, seriously, I would much rather take advantage of these warm weather days doing things I can’t do in winter. Ya know?
We spend quite a bit of time outside in the warm months, often doing yard work or tending the garden and the kids play hard. It gets hot and humid here, so light dinners are a nice way to wind down the day.
This is one of my favorite simple summer dishes to make. Even though it is a pasta dish, it is actually pretty light, especially paired with a simple salad. It isn’t a hot dish, but not cold like a pasta salad either. Sorta in between. It is great as the main course or as a side dish and it always disappears quickly at potlucks!
