The combination of perfectly seasoned linguini with grilled summer vegetables is outstanding. This warm side dish is great for a summer barbecue, or just about any time. Even the kids love it. If you can't find yellow wax beans, just use a full pound of green beans. The green and red colors are fabulous together. If you are making the linguini in advance, simply place it in a colander before serving, and pour plenty of boiling water over it. This will refresh the pasta and heat it through.

My favorite pasta sauces are alfredo and vodka. I find it hard to choose between them. I have been known to order both at restaurants. Hey, sometimes a girl just has to help herself! This lighter version of the classic alfredo goes down just as smoothly as the original.

 

Four Flavorful Fig Recipes

 
Fig Confit

One of my favorite fruits is just coming into season in the United States and Israel. Figs are one of the earliest cultivated plants with fossils found dating back to Neolithic times. Cultivation of figs predates barley, wheat and legumes. High in calcium, flavenoids and fiber, figs are not only super good for you but are also versatile and can be eaten fresh or dried.

Butternut Squash & Leek Tortellini

February 12th 2014By joyofkosher

I am completely obsessed with all pasta dishes. I love the simplicity that allows bold flavors to be on the forefront. The puree made from roasted butternut squash and leeks can be very rich, but is perfectly balanced with the acid from the lemon. I have made this dish kosher by eliminating the pancetta. however, a good quality sea salt used with roasting the squash can achieve the same sweet and salty result.
