Tomato and Basil Summer Sauce
"My mom, who is a great cook, came up with this rich but light tomato and basil summer sauce for pasta that does not offend my red sauce sensibilities. I brought this recipe into adulthood without any changes and I make it with great success for guests and family. "

Greek Salad 'Pasta'
"Faux "pasta" made from vegetables isn’t a new thing, of course. You’ve probably seen a cooked zucchini "pasta" tossed with sauce on a food blog or restaurant menu somewhere. But I haven’t seen this one before. Thinly sliced cucumber "pasta" would be dressed with a cool "sauce" made with yogurt and feta. Red onions are chopped fine and tossed with tomato. Some lemon juice, a little patience with the mandoline, and hey, it’s pretty easy, it works, it’s a little different, kind of fun, is less than 10 ingredients and a half an hour, and still has the same flavors but provides a little wow factor."
