If you’re looking for a way to use up some of your garden produce, this might just be for you.

Make this the night before you plan to eat it, then boil some pasta and serve this over top. A super easy, summer-fresh meal.

I used tomatoes and basil from my very own garden and served over cheese tortellini, but you could use any kind of pasta you wanted.

Little Brother and The Girlfriend seemed to enjoy it as much as I did. They ate it up pretty quickly.


pasta with tomatoes and basil


Combine 2 c. tomatoes (seeded and chopped), 1 c. chopped basil, 5 minced garlic cloves, 1/2 c. olive oil, 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper.

Cover and refrigerator at least four hours or overnight. Heat over medium heat. Serve over pasta. Top with freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese.
