Too Hot to Cook??

Whelp, summer has officially arrived in New England. Yesterday and today were in the high 90's and since my stove is a "heater stove" it literally heats the entire house. I had just gotten some fresh zucchini and yellow squash from the farmer's market and wanted to use that up,so i decided to whip up a pasta-salad-like dish that could be eaten hot or cold.  I also added some butter beans to add protein and fiber to the meal for Baby Coupon.

Pasta and Veggie Dish

You will need:

1 medium zucchini
1medium yellow squash
1small can of mushrooms
1 can of butter beans (optional, Green beans would go great with this dish)
Olive oil
seasonings of your choice(i used, Italian, soy sauce,pepper and garlic powder)
Pasta of your choice

preheat olive oil in a medium saucepan for about 2-3 minutes, add chopped zucchini and squash,beans,mushrooms and spices, cook on medium-high heat until the squash is tender.
Cook pasta according to package. Spoon veggie mixture over pasta and enjoy!
