It's summer -- our favorite eating season of the year. Sure, fall has Thanksgiving. And winter guarantees lots of hot chocolate. Spring gives us rhubarb. But summer, summer has everything else. Even pasta is better when summer's the season.

Summer pastas are sauced with fresh tomatoes, topped with a bounty of squash and corn and smothered in basil-infused pestos. They're the deliciously healthy comfort food the warm months need. They're, well, perfection. See for yourself:
