Green Goddess Pasta

Green Goddess Pasta is a vegetarian gluten-free delight, perfect for a summertime meal!Green Goddess Pasta | chocolateandcarrots.com

With summer today marking the first day of summer (and boy do we feel it here in South Carolina!), the summer produce has been exquisite! I can’t get enough sweet and juicy fruits and crisp and flavorful vegetables. You should see the size of the basil in my herb garden already. It’s nuts!

Lately, I’ve been on a spiralizer kick, too. My children are wild about anything in the shape of a noodle, so I’ll take any chance to squeeze an extra vegetable in them via the spiralizer. We do a lot of zucchini noodles around here! Here’s just another quick weeknight meal that we’ve been loving lately…all four of us! Woot!
