summer pasta from Making Light comments

Mostly for my own reference... From the Making Light thread Pasta with Sausage:

Oh, yeah, another really simple tasty pasta dish. Dice up a small zucchini and/or yellow squash fairly fine (1/4" to 1/2"). Saute in butter with some basil, oregano, salt, pepper. Take it off the heat and stir in a cup of plain yogurt -- you want it to heat up but not separate. Toss with your pasta and top with lots of parmesan. A nice tangy summery sort of thing.

Another practically-no-ingredient pasta side dish -- just toss your hot pasta with a pat of butter and a good squeeze of anchovy paste and a few grindings of fresh pepper. Maybe some parmesan -- can't hurt. Mmm. Even with the low-carb pasta I can't have it too often, but I'm making myself really hungry here...
