Creamy Summer Squash Pasta

September 7th, 2017

I always enjoy cooking with seasonal ingredients! During the summertime, I find that farmers markets offer a beautiful selection of summer squash. They are a versatile vegetable that make a great substitute for pasta!

Creamy Summer Squash Pasta is an easy and flavorful meal to cook up as you follow The Myers Way®. You won’t miss out on any milk or cheese, because the coconut provides the creaminess to to the sauce!

Experiment with different herbs and spices to customize this dish to your taste!
