Simple Summer Pastas

Simple Summer Pastas
Pastas are a wonderful way to showcase peak-of-season produce. Vine-ripened tomatoes—those juicy jewels of summer—star in several of the recipes featured here, which offer something for every occasion.

If you're planning a picnic by the lake or heading to the beach, try our pasta salad with grilled tuna and roasted tomatoes. You can prepare the ingredients before leaving home, then combine them just before serving. For a weeknight meal, serve farfalle tossed with arugula pesto and cherry tomatoes. This dish comes together quickly, especially if you make the pesto the day before. And when you're entertaining company, our lasagna is the perfect choice. You can assemble it in advance and bake it just before your guests arrive.
