Summer is squash season, and what better way to enjoy it than with pasta and wine! Finally, a recipe for our vegetarians. For those who really love meat, feel free to add some cooked bacon or pancetta. We used yellow squash, but zucchini would work just as well.

Ingredients

  • 5 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 2 lbs squash, 1-inch dice

  • 1 tsp fresh sage, finely chopped

  • 1 tsp sea salt

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • Β½ cup Buttercream Chardonnay

  • 1 cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese

  • 1 lb short pasta (i.e., fusilli, penne, or elbows)

  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

  • Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-low heat.
  • Add diced onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
  • Add squash, sage, and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.
  • Add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes.
