Make This Simple Zucchini Pasta with Your Farmer's Market Haul – Camille Styles

Aka “what to do with your farmer’s market haul.”
By Camille Styles
Dips in the pool, cold drinks, and juicy summer produce are high on my list of life’s best offerings right now. While I might be ready for this intense heat to subside, there’s still nothing like the last days of summer—and my farmer’s market haul means that my produce drawer is full of way more summer squash than I know what to do with.
I’m leaning into the abundance by making this mouthwatering zucchini pasta recipe that celebrate’s the season’s best flavors. Summer squashes, nutty parmesan, zesty lemon, and aromatic herbs come together for one of the best simple pastas in my playbook. Eat it al fresco and pretend like you’re in Italy.

Yes, there are a lot of zucchini pastas out there—but this is the ONE I’ve got on repeat. What makes it really great (aside from the short ingredient list) is the specific combination of flavors. Sweet, caramelized squash with salty parmesan. The bright acid of the lemon and the fresh herbs make it comforting, vibrant, and nourishing—without being at all heavy. It’s a celebration of summer’s finest, creating a dish that’s both comforting and vibrant.
I like to use a tube-shaped pasta for this one—paccheri, rigatoni, or pesto—so that the delicious sauce gets scooped up into every bite.

We’ve not been having pasta dishes as much or at all this year, but this seems very good; a tad heavy on the oil.

30 minutes seems long time for squash to cook
This was simply delicious! A great summer dish that I will definitely make again. Used a zucchini but my summer squash had gone bad, so I added some fresh tomatoes in the last 5 minutes of cooking as suggested. I used vegan parm instead of regular and kept everything else as is. My only question is about the garlic. Should it be removed from the pan before the zucchini is cooked in the oil for 30 mins? It seemed a little overdone so I wasn’t sure if I’d mistakenly left it in when I shouldn’t have. Still ate and enjoyed it! Thanks for a great recipe!
