Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

8 ounces dried orecchiette (or your favorite short pasta)

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons minced shallot

3 garlic cloves, minced

Pinch of crushed red-pepper flakes

Hot summer months calls for a mix of pesto and pasta

Hot summer months calls for a mix of pesto and pasta More light and refreshing than a cream-based sauce or a chunky ragu, pesto makes for an excellent accompaniment to pasta during the hot summer months. 

We used: Goat cheese & artichoke pasta (for 4 servings) • 5 tbsp of oil • 1 clove of garlic • 4 artichoke hearts • 4 tbsp of chopped parsley • 1/3 cup (50 g) of almonds • just over 1 cup (300 g) of goat cheese • just under 1 cup (40 g) of grated pecorino cheese • 14 oz (400 g) of pasta • salt and pepper to taste.

Not only is this one of the speediest pasta recipes I've ever cooked, but it's also one of the most flavorful -- and most colorful! I really don't know how

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 large lemon)

3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, for garnish


1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Generously salt the water and cook the pasta according to the package directions until al dente. Reserve ½ cup of the cooking water and drain the pasta. Set aside.

2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and garlic; cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the pepper flakes and zest along with the spinach. Cook until the spinach wilts, about 3 minutes. Stir in the artichoke hearts.

3. Add the pasta to the spinach and artichoke mixture. Crumble the goat cheese over the top and stir in the lemon juice along with ¼ cup of the reserved pasta water. Continue stirring until a creamy sauce coats the pasta. If the pasta isn’t creamy enough, add additional pasta water. Season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with fresh basil.
