This is an all-star of a recipe and one of my absolute favorites, especially in the summer months. It highlights the best of the summer garden- fresh cherry tomatoes & fragrant basil. What tastes more like summer than that?!
It’s a dish that has the ability to transport me to somewhere in Italy in the summertime. (Where? I don’t know- but it’s my daydream- feel free to share in my imaginary trip!) It’s fresh, vibrant and surprisingly light. Serve with a glass of crisp, white wine and you too, will be transported to the land of delicious simplicity.
Using a medley of yellow & red cherry tomatoes not only creates a new flavor profile, but also creates a colorful presentation!
I use my own homemade spaghetti, which is very thin and light, but if you aren’t up for making your own pasta dough, just use your favorite store bought angel hair or capellini.
