    It is a really fast and fresh tasting pasta dish (ok I added some red wine to it) I served it with grilled Sweet Italian Sausages. Right now we have an Italian exchange student you loved it (and he is very honest)

    good but not a fan of the fennels seeds or the cayenne pepper. I will make again but change up the spices.

    This recipe is easy and uses summer produce from the garden, but I did find it to be pretty bland. I even added fresh basil from the garden, but it wasn't enough of a flavour punch. Might add pesto or sundried tomatoes next time.

    I misread the recipe a couple times. I didn't remove the squash and I added 1 cup of broth. I scooped out some broth and cooked on high to cook off any extra liquid. It ended up every tasty though. I chose orzo pasta and it was perfect.
