Hello, hello! We’ve been having a welcome break from the typical August heat here in the DC area with some crazy thunder storms! In between the storms we have been trying to get out and grill as much as possible! Today I am partnering with Frontier Co-Op to bring you this Grilled Summer Vegetable Pasta recipe featuring their Sea Salt, Table Grind.
Frontier Co-Op sources all of their spices from growers who are committed to sustainability, ethical trade and quality. They graciously allowed me to sample a variety of their spices and create a new recipe to share with you guys today!
Summer vegetables are delicious on their own, but when sprinkled with a little sea salt and olive oil their flavors are elevated to the next level. It is easy to forget how delicious a simple skewer of zucchini, pepper, onion and corn on the cob can be!
What you see is what you get with this pasta salad. After grilling the vegetable skewers you cut the vegetables into small pieces and add them to a 1/2 pound of whole wheat pasta, mix with a little more olive oil and a touch of lemon juice. No other spices are necessary because the sea salt draws out all of the delicious vegetable flavors. This summer pasta is a versatile dish that can be served warm as the main course or cold as a side dish.
