Pasta & Squash with Tomatoes, Basil, and Pine Nuts
See? I've been more inspired lately. I've been cooking! I pulled out this oldie-but-goodie the other night to make a full batch of Pasta & Squash with Tomatoes, Basil, and Pine Nuts from Cooks Illustrated. While I had the pasta and squash, I did not have any tomatoes or basil. I used dried basil (and dehydrated garlic because I was out of fresh garlic too), and I used drained canned tomatoes in place of the cherry tomatoes. I just threw them in with the squash at the end so it could warm up and cook a little bit. It turned out beautifully and I have had some delicious leftovers!
