For Summer meals, you usually want to make something quick and easy to beat the heat in the kitchen, which usually calls for the grill. However, it can also be as simple as boiling a pot of water and tossing pasta with fresh summer produce! Go pick all of your cherry tomatoes from the garden and blister them in some olive oil and garlic. Toss in linguine and parsley then top with cheese, of course.
Or, toss some spaghetti with sweet summer corn, butter, and steamed clams. Top with fresh ricotta mixed with chopped herbs, I had basil and parsley on hand. Serve with crusty bread and a glass of chilled white wine.. Fin!
