Ingredients
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 large yellow tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1 small yellow squash, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh chives (about 1 small bunch)
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled
  • 12 ounces dried egg fettuccine
  • 4 ounces wax beans (about 2 cups), trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Directions
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Toss the tomato, squash, chives, lemon zest and 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large bowl. Season with salt. Sprinkle in half of the goat cheese.

  • Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook as the label directs, adding the wax beans to the pot during the last 3 minutes of cooking. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking water, then drain the pasta and beans and add to the bowl with the vegetables. Drizzle with the reserved cooking water and the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and toss until the goat cheese begins to melt. Add the parmesan and toss. Divide among bowls and top with the remaining goat cheese.
