. . . still would not deplete my backlog before my next CSA delivery.
That’s right. As I type, there are EIGHT summer squash (six zucchini and two yellow squash) in my fridge. Last week’s sharebox included four of each, and this week’s held four more.
My goal: to eat them up or put them up by next Monday.
It’s a Zuke-off! It’s Cucuzza-mania! It’s a downright Squashapalooza!
Squashapalooza Day I: Pasta with zucchini, corn, and tomatoes
Inspired by Mark Bittman, on a tip from my pal, Ann.
I halved Mark’s original recipe, and subbed in a handful of the Sungold cherry tomatoes from this week’s share. Bonus points for using one of the smaller sweet onions from last week. Double-bonus points for having grown the garlic and the tarragon myself.
Thrown together in about 20 minutes, this made enough for a quick dinner Monday night, plus lunch (with a small salad) on Tuesday.
