These 30 Recipes to Make for September take you through recipes featuring everything from tomatoes to squash. September is a special time of year with so much abundant produce in season, so I hope you enjoy some of these recipes over the next few weeks!
There’s so much in season during the month of September, it’s hard to know where to begin! You’ll still find a bit of corn lingering in there along with tomatoes. But you also start to see all things pumpkin and winter squash, along with potatoes.
I’m the type of person that has a hard time letting go of summer. But since September is my absolute favorite month, it feels a bit like summer carries on. The nights grow colder but the days are still warm enough to enjoy summery food. And the temperatures here in Montana are perfect for sitting out on the patio for dinner because it’s ‘not to hot and not too cold’!
Oh… and that reminds me of what I made the other night I wanted to share with you! I made my Blender Fresh Tomato Checca Sauce without the mozzarella and tossed it with angel hair, (zucchini noodles work too).
Then as a side dish, I sautéed fresh corn and zucchini. When the zucchini was crisp tender, I pulled the pan from the heat, let it cool for about 10 minutes, then folded in some of my Basil Aioli I had leftover in the fridge. (It’s important to let the veggies cool a bit, if you fold aioli into veggies that are too hot, the sauce will break and look like a puddle of oil.)
This side dish was seriously so delicious my husband asked for 3rds! Now this really is unheard of when there’s pasta on the table, so I knew I had to share it with you. I won’t have time to put it into a proper recipe this year since I’m testing recipes for the fall. But I hope you get to enjoy it soon.
