Congratulations to our Healdsburg Certified Farmers' Market. They just celebrated their birthday on July 19th. Not to be missed is the annual Zucchini Festival on August 9th! So much fun for all: zucchini car races, decorated zucchini and contests for the largest squash. If you’ve never seen a zucchini race along a track, then join us for this town-favorite event.

A tribute to the mighty squash:
Linguine with Summer Squash & Tomatoes
8 oz. + Linguine or Fettucini
2 Summer Squash, sliced
2 Fresh Tomatoes, chopped
½ (or less) cup Basil (fresh!)
1 Tblsp Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to Taste
1 teas Red Pepper Flakes
Grated Parmesan

Cook pasta according to package directions. Add squash to the water in the last 5 minutes. Meanwhile, combine oil, tomatoes, basil, salt & pepper and pepper flakes. Drain pasta and squash well. Toss with oil/tomato mixture. Top with Parmesan. Note – this is more of a “room-temp” dish than a cold pasta salad.
