Summer Squash Pasta Primavera Recipe

Summer Squash Pasta Primavera Recipe

SINCE I eat very little meat, I'm always on the lookout for vegetarian and low-fat recipes. I came up with this recipe after a lot of experimenting. I used tomatoes as a base for the sauce, and my version of pasta primavera has been enjoyed by both family and friends.—Clara DelVitto, Midlothian, Virginia
