From the Test Kitchen

Summer has a particular flavor. Lush and robust, the produce that grows this time of year requires almost nothing. Just a quick sauté, a little bit of seasoning, a few sprigs of fresh herbs (and, of course, some fresh mozzarella to bring it all together). We designed this recipe to highlight our favorite summer vegetables, and to let them speak for themselves.

  • ¼ lb Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 cup Fregola Sarda
  • ¼ tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:
Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a small pot of salted water to boiling on high. Cut the Romano beans into 2-inch pieces. Peel and smash the garlic cloves. Tear the mozzarella into small pieces. Trim off and discard the stems of the peppers. Pick the basil leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Remove and discard the husks and silks from the corn. Cut the kernels off the cob; discard the cob. Peel and small dice the onion. Cut the tomatoes in half.
Cook the fregola:

Add the fregola sarda to the boiling water and cook 12 to 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Stir in a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside as you continue cooking.

3 Toast the garlic:
While the fregola cooks, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the garlic and cook, occasionally tilting the pan away from you to coat the garlic in oil, 2 to 4 minutes, or until golden.
