Description

Just a few simple ingredients make a dreamy dish! The recipe is scaled for one.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cups Dried Penne Pasta
  • 3 teaspoons Butter, Divided
  • 1 whole Small Yellow Squash (or Zucchini), Shredded
  • 2 teaspoons Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt
  • Cracked Black Pepper

Preparation

1. Boil pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta water, drain, and set aside.
2. Meanwhile, heat 1 teaspoon of butter over medium heat in a pan. Add squash and saute until tender, 3-4 minutes. Then add the cooked pasta, remaining 2 teaspoons butter, and parmesan to the pan. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir until cheese and butter melt. Add pasta water (1 tablespoon at a time) if pasta seems too dry.
3. Scoop into a serving bowl and top with more pepper and parmesan, if desired.

Half the family really enjoyed this and the rest tolerated it without much complaint. For a veggie-based dish, that is a real success story around here.

Yum, yum, yum! This was excellent! My toddler just gobbled it up and so did we. Thanks for a great and easy dish. :-)
