Nod to Summer Pasta

Nod to Summer Pasta from Relish the Feast

Cooler (and downright cold) weather is here, and I miss my tank tops already. In homage to summer, I made this simple pasta dish. It’s hearty enough for the current season with a freshness reminiscent of the warm, lazy days of summer.


  • Cooked pasta
  • 1 summer squash
  • 1 Polish kielbasa
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • Salt, pepper and oregano to season


  • Chop the bell pepper and begin sauteing it on medium heat in a little olive oil.
  • Slice the kielbasa and add it to the pan. Bump the heat up slightly. Cook for roughly 5 minutes, stirring occassionally.
  • While the pepper and kielbasa are cooking, chop the summer squash.
  • Reduce heat back to medium and add the squash to the pan.
  • Let everything cook together until the squash begins to look shiny and barely translucent, roughly 5 more minutes.
  • Season with salt, pepper and oregano to taste. Stir and cook for another minute.
  • Plate your prepared pasta and top with the bell pepper, kielbasa and squash mixture.

If this is too dry for your taste, drizzle a small amount of olive oil on it. I wouldn’t recommend adding cheese.
