Summer Pasta Recipes

I have been making light summer pasta and summer salad recipes the last couple of days. Last week I made Pecan-Crusted Chicken Salad with Sweet and Tangy Balsamic Dressing.........yummy. This weekend I tried Baked Lemon Pasta.....lots of fresh lemon flavor. Tonight I am trying Spinach Pesto and Pasta. Summer is the time when I enjoy cooking with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs. The local farmers markets and roadside vendors are everywhere so I try to take advantage of the fresh produce. They contain more flavor and more nutrients. So enjoy the best of the local farms and gardens and try a new recipe. Email me if you want to try a new recipe!


  1. I love the summer veggies, too. Can't have too many, and they're good for you, too! Those recipes sound really good. We'll have to try them. Maybe we can fix a few while we're in Florida!! Only a few days...

  2. I would LOVE to have the pecan crusted chicken salad recipe! It's sounds perfect for a summer day!
