It’s Labor Day, the last hurrah of summer.
We’re spending the day in town. Casey’s getting ready for school to start this week — his first year of teaching. It’s exciting for both of us, and we’re glad this new chapter of our lives is starting. I have the day off of work, and I’m doing a bit of cooking and cleaning, and then we’re headed to a barbeque at my parents’ house.
Each morning feels more like fall. The air is crisp, and we’re no longer leaving the windows open 24/7. My cooking is starting to change, too. I’m starting to crave soups and comfort food, and I’m looking forward to trying some new recipes this year.
There’s still time for a few more summery recipes, and this is one of them. A pasta dish that celebrates the best produce of summer, without complicating it too much. It’s also light, yet filling, and easily made vegan if you need to.
