This week is coming to an end and the weather prediction promised a summer-like weekend. I am really looking forward to a weekend without tons of obligations and events (kids’ parties, games etc. all parents out there know what I am talking about). Of course everything would be better if Penelope was not under with a cold, but I supposed one cannot have everything, right?

Being in the mood of an early summer weekend, I strongly propose to try making this pasta. So easy to prepare, giving you the time and space to enjoy the good weather. It is so colorful and it smells amazing! For you not eating cheese, you may omit the parmesan in the recipe. Cook this pasta, have a glass of chilly white wine and enjoy it outdoors. You can dream of summer in April. So, let’s check out the recipe!
