I’ve been slacking and only posting once a week because I am doing some renovation work to the hizz-ouse, before we put it on the market. Half of my house is in my kitchen and nobody wants to see a food blog about Christmas decorations, a bedside table and a toothbrush. My hungry-apple-iphone-camera is full and I can’t make food in my kitchen anyway.
If you don’t like summer recipes, this may be a good time for you to close your eyes. I’m thinking the blog is going to be very summery for a few weeks so I can fit in all the recipes I have to share, before I dive into things like pumpkin and butternut squash and dreary cold weather.
This recipe is straight from Real Simple and is straight up delicious.

LINGUINE WTH SUMMER VEGGIES AND GOAT CHEESE
3/4 pound linguine (i used fresh)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups fresh corn (from 2 ears)
2 cloves garlic, sliced
sea salt and fresh black pepper
2 pints cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
2 small zucchini (about 1 pound), cut into thin ribbons with a vegetable peeler
2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled yourself
instructions and directions:
Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve ¾ cup of the cooking water; drain the pasta and return it to the pot.
Meanwhile, heat oven to 350° F. Spread the walnuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast, tossing occasionally, until fragrant, 8 to 10 minutes.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the corn, garlic, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, tossing occasionally, until the corn is tender, 2 to 4 minutes.
Add the corn, tomatoes, zucchini, and ½ cup of the cooking water to the pasta. Cook over medium heat, gently tossing, until the liquid is slightly thickened and coats the pasta, 2 to 3 minutes (adding more cooking water as needed to loosen the sauce).
Serve sprinkled with the oregano, walnuts, and goat cheese.
