Summertime Pasta

Sharing is caring!

Summertime pasta may be the best dish I have ever made. I’m not kidding! It took me three days of cooking it to get it just how I wanted it to pair perfectly with spaghetti. It’s so easy to cook and the flavor is great. I kept it plain without adding cheese because it just tasted so good to me but you can sprinkle it with parmesan cheese for an extra finish if you’d like. You won’t be able to leave this alone so heap up a bunch of veggies on your plate before you sit down or you will be going right back to the pan.

I usually don’t like sun-dried tomato and never cook with it or order anything that includes it at a restaurant, but now I am a fan. This California Sun Dry brand is delicious. It gives the veggies a burst of flavor. Zucchini is also not a personal favorite, but this recipe livens up that vegetable for me and I actually enjoyed it. This no-meat dish will fill you up, get you to eat your veggies, and doesn’t require much time in the kitchen. Enjoy with or without the pasta!

Summertime Pasta

Course: Main Course
Keyword: pasta, sun-dried tomato, veggies


  • 1 Zucchini chopped
  • 1 Yellow squash chopped
  • 1/2 Onion chopped
  • 3-5 tsp Sun-dried tomato with garlic California brand (pictured above in the post) is delicious! Add as much or as little as you like. This ingredient gives the veggies so much flavor.
  • Heavy whipping cream just enough to make a slightly creamy mix
  • 1/2 stick Butter chopped, use more or less to suit your taste
  • Italian seasoning just a sprinkle
  • Black pepper just a sprinkle
  • Garlic salt just a sprinkle


  • Spray the bottom of a pan with non-stick olive oil cooking spray.
  • Set the heat to medium-high and throw all ingredients in the pan.
  • Stir as the veggies cook and add a bit more heavy whipping cream or butter if needed. The goal is to get just enough creaminess for use as a spaghetti topping.
  • Reduce heat to low, continue stirring.
  • Remove from heat once veggies are cooked to your liking.
  • Cook spaghetti and drain. Top with veggies.
  • Add parmesan cheese if preferred.
  • Enjoy!


I used regular spaghetti this time but I think angel hair would be even better. 

Enjoy this taste of sweet summertime! Just remember, calories don’t count when eating Summertime Pasta!
