Author:
Ingredients
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 pound yellow summer squash
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • ½ tsp salt plus 1 tablespoon, divided
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes (about 6 ounces), halved lengthwise
  • 12 ounces fusilli or other corkscrew-shaped pasta
Instructions
  1. Put 2 quarts of water on to boil in a large pot.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly brown, 4 to 8 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, if the yellow squash has a “crookneck,” cut off the neck, halve it lengthwise and cut into ¼-inch slices; quarter the wider part lengthwise and cut into ¼-inch slices. If the squash is shaped like a zucchini, quarter it lengthwise and cut into ¼-inch slices.
  4. When the onion is lightly brown, add the squash, thyme, ½ teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the squash releases most of its liquid and begins to brown, 7 to 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to break down, 4 to 6 minutes more.
  5. Meanwhile, add the remaining 1 tablespoon salt to the boiling water, stir in pasta and cook according to package instructions until just tender. Drain well and toss with the sauce. Serve at once.
