Sister Sunday

Fresh Summer Pasta

Summer is finally here, and it is beyond lovely. And as the temperature starts rising, I feel my body starting to crave different foods. The thought of heavy, hot comfort food sounds less appealing, and lighter, fresher dishes is always on my mind.

This super simple pasta dish is a staple at our house in the summertime. Five ingredients that I usually have in my kitchen at any time and minimum prep time gives me extra time out in the sun. And it is not negative that the flavors brings me right to Italy.

What you need is:
ripe tomatoes
chopped garlic
fresh basil
extra virgin olive oil

As with any simple dish, the quality of the ingredients is truly what lifts this dish from great to fantastic. Chop tomatoes and basil and mix with olive oil and garlic. Let sit for at least an hr before you toss it in some boiled pasta. Serve with freshly grated Parmesan reggiano and garlic baguettes. Yum!

You can totally use ur leftovers it as bruccetta topping, delish!
