Summer Squash Pasta with Yogurt Sauce | @naturallyella

When I think of pasta in the summer, I almost immediately think of the mayo-laden macaroni salad or the pasta salad that almost always has cubes of cheese. Neither of these examples are what this summer squash pasta is all about. While this pasta dish can be served cold, I like to use the heat of the noodles to balance the chill of the yogurt for a just-warm, perfect summer pasta. Also, if you want to take this dish an extra step, it’s perfect with homemade whole wheat pasta.

Ingredients
  • 4 ounces pasta, your choice
  • 3 cups summer squash and zucchini ribbons (appx. 2 squash- see note)
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 2 cups loosely packed basil
  • ½ to ¾ cup whole milk yogurt
  • ½ ounce crumbled feta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions
  1. Cook pasta according to package, Drain and place in a large bowl along with the squash ribbons and hemp seeds.
  2. In a blender, combine the basil, 1/2 cup yogurt, feta, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pulse until the sauce is well combined. Add up to 1/4 cup more yogurt as needed to thin out the sauce slightly. Taste and adjust lemon juice, salt, or pepper as needed.
  3. Pour 3/4 of the sauce over the pasta mixture and toss until well combined. Serve with an extra drizzle of sauce and a sprinkle of basil, hemp seeds, and/or chili flakes if desired.

Notes
+ The easiest way to make squash ribbons is to use your vegetable peeler and instead of just peeling the outside, continue to peel the entire squash from top to bottom.
