Whole-wheat Pasta with Summer Vegetables

This recipe was inspired by the Gnocchi with Summer Vegetables recipe from Thomas Keller’s Bouchon cookbook. I didn’t have the time to make the gnocchi and I wanted to veganize it for Vegan Tuesdays so I used some whole-wheat penne I had on hand instead. I also used Earth Balance instead of butter.

This is not a quick recipe, but it is simple and delicious. The flavors are fresh and the addition of the olives and lemon juice really make this dish. You can find the original recipe HERE.
