Sometimes you just need a simple, fresh dinner. This dish is exactly that.
You don’t even need to be a gardener to enjoy this pasta. Shoot, it doesn’t even need to be summer. But every time I make and eat it I imagine summertime is in full swing and those tomatoes are ripening on the vine. Basically just imagine a little slice of summer heaven. To me this is just summertime in pasta form.
With just 6 ingredients, and only 15 minutes to prep and make, you can have a tasty, seasonal dinner in no time! I enjoy it both hot and cold which means leftovers are easily consumed. You can always top it off with a little freshly grated or shredded Parmesan cheese.
Watch the video to see just how I make it. Just be warned that the video will probably make you hungry.

Now, I’d never let someone leave my home hungry, but ou should never leave my website or YouTube channel without being totally starved!
