Eating Local : Easy, efforless in the summer

Eating Local is not hard at this time of year. Just look at all the wonderful produce available.
I have been making a regular habit of buying at a local market, selecting seasonal produce and making a few additions such as mushrooms and colorful pasta. Grill the zucchini and the summer squash: sauté the garlic in a bit of olive oil. Toss all the grilled vegetables, sautéed garlic together. Cook the pasta according to directions, drain, reserving a small amount of the cooking liquid.
Add the pasta to the vegetable mixture in the sauté pan and toss to coat the pasta. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp of chopped fresh basil, and salt and pepper to taste. Serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Summer does not taste better than this!
