Summer Squash & Mushroom Pasta

 I just love the abundance of fresh veggies this time of year. You can throw any number of fresh summer veggies in this simple dish.

Summer Squash & Mushroom Pasta
12 oz. rotini
2 T. olive oil
1-2 c. pearl onions
1 1/2 c. zucchini, thinly sliced
1 1/2 c. yellow summer squash, thinly sliced
1 lb. sliced mushrooms (I used criminis)
1 (25 oz.) jar butternut squash pasta sauce (or your favorite sauce)
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper

Prepare rotini according to package directions. Drain and set aside. In the same pot, heat oil and add pearl onions. Season with a little salt and saute for 1-2 minutes.

Add zucchini, summer squash, and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and saute until tender (5-7 minutes).
Remove from heat and stir in sauce and minced garlic. (This is amazing sauce that I found at Costco. It's also available online at Dave's Gourmet or Amazon.)
 Stir in cooked rotini.
 Serve with a little parmesan sprinkled on top.
 This is such a fast dinner to throw together for a busy summer evening. Enjoy!
