This summer has been incredibly busy and hot! And this dish is the perfect for when you are busy and for when its too hot to cook.
Pasta Primavera is a pasta dish composed of pasta and fresh vegetables and in my opinion the summer is the BEST time to make it!
In my recipe, I showcase tons of in season Michigan produce. I use squash, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, corn and lots of basil. I add burratta as well, but that is optional (but highly recommended).
We’ve been busy for a really good reason.. we are OPENING A BAKERY! YAY 😀 *cue the festive music*
