Summer Squash and Tomato Spaghetti

June 25, 2014

This is a taste of summer pasta.  For most of you the beginning of tomato season is wonderful but here in Florida it is the very end.  The exception is the grape tomato which with great monitoring and care you can have these beauties most of the summer.  Summer squash has always been a favorite of mine and I hope you enjoy this quick and tasty pasta.
