Easy Scallop Pasta

Good moooorning!

This year I joined a local CSA and cannot believe it has taken me this long to get involved in one. So many of you ask how to shop and eat clean on a budget, and I highly recommend joining a local CSA to help with your shopping. For the money we spent for the 20 weeks, the amount of produce we get weekly is AMAZING. I am making all the fresh veggies with dinner. And lunch. And breakfast!

Like this delicious summer squash pasta.

Probably one of the easiest, most delicious, light dinners around.

Perfect for SUMMER!
