Garden Goodness!

One of my favorite things about summer is the abundance of fresh fruits and veggies!
The other day I shared a recipe for blueberry buckle  and now I have to share another summer favorite!!

Whole Wheat Penne With Veggies

Doesn't it look delicious?! Whole wheat pasta, veggies, and basil! Super easy and really yummy! This is one meatless meal that my dear hubby will eat, but you could easily add some chicken as well. During summer I often cut the recipe in half and make it at lunch time for Emma and me. There is always enough for the both of us and a little bit leftover. It's always better when the veggies and basil are fresh from the garden!

Whole Wheat Penne With Veggies

1 box whole wheat penne pasta
1 small onion, chopped
1 summer squash, chopped
