Something different

I've been busy painting and haven't had time to write up any kitchen art..hope I haven't lost you. Here's an easy to prepare pasta dish with some unusual ingredients that turned out to be fabulous. Boil up some zucchetta pugliese pasta(they look like zuchinni-ends) or whatever pasta suits your fancy. While the pasta is cooking, dice four slices of Italian speck ( air dried bacon somewhat like prosciutto) and brown in olive oil with two cloves of diced garlic. Add one summer squash sliced on the diagonal, 1/2 sliced red pepper, a handful of walnuts, some thinly sliced radicchio ( aboout a half) and some herbs de Provence. Add a dash of Marsala and saute until tender. Then add 3 TBS crumbled goat cheese, a sprinkling of crumbled blue cheese and a touch of soy creamer to thin mixture. Simmer for a few minutes and then toss in pasta and serve. Serves two
