Summer Spaghetti with Zucchini and Corn


            Hello everyone. I hope y'all are having a wonderful Summer and enjoying all the
            beautiful food that is in season right now. Food tastes so fresh and wonderful -
            during the Summer. Shop at your local farmer's market, the fruits and vegetables
            are so perfect and bountiful. What are you enjoying this Summer?

                                                   Summer Spaghetti with Zucchini and Corn

                                                   1 box of spaghetti
                                                   3 zucchinis
                                                   2 cups corn
                                                   3 garlic cloves
                                                   2 to 3 tablespoons butter
                                                   2 tablespoons olive oil
                                                   salt and pepper
                                                   1 teaspoon oregano
                                                   1/2 teaspoon each of onion and garlic powder
                                                   1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes ( optional )
                                                   1/2 cup feta

         1) Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

         2) In the meantime in a large skillet, heat olive oil and butter until melted.
         Add zucchini and cook for a few minutes, add garlic and cook for 2 more
         minutes. Add corn and all spices. Cook until corn is done. Turn heat off
         and add feta.

         3) Drain pasta. I like to add pasta to the plate and spoon on the vegetables and
         top with extra feta.

           Note - this meal is great served with grilled lemon chicken and garlic bread.

           I like to add a little butter to the warm pasta and save a little 1/2 cup pasta water.
