It's perfect for those hot summer nights when the last thing you want to deal with is a long-simmering pot of sauce. But Justin's super-fresh sauce isn't the only way to summer-up pasta. Here, seven excellent pasta recipes that use ultra-ripe summer produce. 

1. Pasta alla Norma
This peasant dish from La Minosse in Siracusa is like Sicily in a bowl.

2. Pasta with Fresh Puttanesca Sauce
This no-cook spicy tomato sauce from F&W’s Kay Chun is flavor-packed with anchovies, capers, green olives and crushed red pepper.

3. Giobbi’s Primavera Pasta
The tomato salad in this recipe also makes for a fabulous crostini topping.

4. Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes and Grilled Scallions
A quick puree of scallions, tomatoes and olive oil creates a delicious sauce for this three-ingredient recipe.

5. Pasta with Tomato and Black Olive Sauce
Barbara Lynch’s rustic pasta is very adaptable to whatever summer vegetables are at their peak. Here she uses tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash and eggplant.

6. Gemelli with Tuna, Tomatoes and Jalapeño
Gemelli, tightly wound coils of pasta, work especially well with chunky sauces like this one, which gets a spicy kick from chopped jalapeño.

7. Pappardelle with Tomatoes, Almonds and Parmesan
Sweet and juicy seasoned summer tomatoes with crunchy roasted almonds and nutty cheese make a delicious topping for pasta.
