Today, I am going to share their Summer Peach Garden Pasta. It is super easy to make with very little time spent at the hot stove. This recipe is perfect for the summer months and will go great as either a main dish or a side dish next to some grilled chicken, pork chops or steak.[Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for purposes of an unbiased review.

- 12 ounces casarecce pasta
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon minced shallot
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt plus more as needed
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil plus basil leaves for garnish
- 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
- 1 1/2 cups multicolored cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 cup chopped peaches
- 1 cup fresh corn kernels
- freshly grated parmesan cheese
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta; cook according to the package directions. Drain.
- Whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, vinegar, shallot, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. While whisking, slowly drizzle in the olive oil and whisk until emulsified. Add the cooked pasta, basil, pine nuts, tomatoes, peaches, and corn and toss well.
- Serve pasta with a sprinkling of basil leaves and grated Parmesan.
Note: I did not have cherry tomatoes, so I cut up Roma tomatoes for the recipe. I was also out of corn, so I added in some red bell peppers. If you are substituting ingredients, make sure to use vegetables that will compliment the peaches.
