Expert Tips

The pesto is available in the dairy department of the grocery store, or try one of the newer varieties in jars near the pasta sauce.

You can use any combination of summer squash that you have on hand. For a fun summer dish, try a mixture of zucchini, yellow summer squash and pattypan squash.
