There is something so special about driving by and grabbing a farm-fresh watermelon off the back of a truck or walking up to the farmers market in our neighborhood on Saturday morning. We just love seeing what is in season and throwing together a family dinner from that. When the ingredients are at their peak it’s kind of hard to go wrong.

My favorite thing about making this pasta is that it is adaptable to anytime of year. Pasta is delicious with pretty much and veggies it it. This time I used asparagus to keep is pretty filling without having to over serve the actual pasta. Another great veggie to include that is otherwise almost impossible for me to get my kids to eat is peas. Yes – you read that right. This pasta with peas recipe really transforms little green peas into a delicious flavor.
