Fresh Heirloom Tomatoes and Pasta
I went to the new farmers market in San Marcos on Sunday for two specific reasons: 1 -- I wanted heirloom tomatoes, and 2 -- I wanted fresh fruit.
Yes, I can get these from the organic section at Sprouts, but they are seriously not as good as the farmers market produce. Yum.
Tonight I made a no-cook sauce for some whole wheat pasta.
1 large heirloom tomato, chopped into bite-size pieces
Green olives, sliced (as many as you want)
1/2 package whole wheat pasta
While the pasta was cooking, I blended the following ingredients in my tupperware chopper thing:
(about) 1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves
Few sprigs of fresh rosemary
2 garlic cloves
(about)2 tablespoons olive oil
Pinch of salt
When the pasta was done, I first mixed the tomato pieces and green olives with the oily-basil-garlic sauce, then poured the entire tomato mixture into the pot of drained pasta and mixed well.
I added a little bit of black pepper and red pepper flakes.
Delicious! A delightful, easy, simple summer pasta dish.
