Tomato Basil Pasta

My FAVORITE summer recipe! Great as a side and main dish :) We grow Roma tomatoes in our garden just for this dish!

You need:
7 Roma Tomatoes
2 cloves of Garlic
Whole Wheat Pasta cooked
Olive Oil

First you want to blanch your tomatoes (this takes the skin off of them).
Don't know how to blanch? No problem!

Score the tomatoes on the top and bottom.

Put them in a pot of water with just enough to cover the tomatoes.

Once the edges lift, use a slotted spoon to lift tomatoes and put them in an ice water bath.

Cut up basil, most effective way is to put the leaves together, roll them and cut.

Mince garlic

Cut tomatoes once they cool.

Drizzle olive oil in a large frying pan. High-medium heat. Add garlic and sauté. After 2 minutes add tomatoes and basil. Heat through.

 Add cooked noodles and sauté.

Top with fresh Parmesan cheese.

Enjoy :)
