  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
  • juice + zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 small zucchini, cut into ribbons
  • 1 small yellow squash, cut into ribbons
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced thin

  • 1 pound fettuccine pasta
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 6 ounces aged or creamy goat cheese, crumbled

  • 1. In a medium bowl, combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, lemon zest and juice, basil, oregano, crushed red pepper flakes, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Add the zucchini, yellow squash, red pepper, corn, and artichokes and toss to combine.
