Recipe: Pesto & Prosciutto Zucchini Linguine

Summer has finally arrived! But true to Montana form, it followed some chilly ( at least to me) days. I woke up on the 4th of July to a temperature in my house that should have kicked on the heat. That same day, the AC turned on. But now that the July heat seems to be here to stay, I am exploring new recipes that don’t require any heat. I don’t even want to BBQ as it's too hot outside to stand by the grill. This recipe is a perfect way to beat the heat and use up those garden fresh zucchinis: no oven, no microwave and no grill needed. It is simple, takes less than 30 minutes, and many adaptations can be made.

There you have it! A complete meal made without turning on any appliances that’ll make your house even hotter. Enjoy and stay cool this summer!
