Summer Squash “Lasagna”
(The word lasagna is in quotes because this dish has no pasta. Rather, summer squash is sliced paper thin on the mandolin, then parboiled, and takes the place of the traditional pasta.)
Casserole of summer squash, tomato-pepper sauce, ricotta with basil, and mozzarella and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheeses; salad vinaigrette; grilled yeast bread with garlic butter
Butter pecan ice cream served with pecan cookies and a melted semisweet chocolate drizzle
