From the Test Kitchen

This easy, seasonal recipe celebrates the sunshine—by harnessing its bright hues in a homemade tomato sauce. We’re lightly coating fun-shaped, whole-grain pasta in a sauce made with vibrant heirloom tomato and summer squash (and thickened with a little butter and Parmesan). Mild and delicately sweet, it makes delicious use of summer’s best produce. To round out the hearty pasta, we’re making a salad with crisp red leaf lettuce, creamy goat cheese and crunchy almonds.
