As my garden continues to ripen recipes like this are ideal to fix in the summer time. Not to heavy, not to hot and allows me to pick fresh vegetables out of my garden and eat right away. Today I share with you a recipe for Fresh Tomato Pasta.
4 Large Tomatoes chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
6 leaves of fresh basil
3 T. of Olive Oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 (2 1/4 oz.) can of black olives, drained
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
Cook pasta in boiling water to desired tenderness. While water is boiling, combine tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper. Let sit a few minutes. Drain pasta and place in a large bowl. Top with tomato mixture and sprinkle with olives and feta cheese.
It's quick to make and taste great on a summer evening with a glass of wine and really allows you to enjoy the tomatoes and basil you grow in your garden. Serve with some garlic bread and maybe a salad and you will be all set for dinner tonight.
