Fresco! This is a no cook marinara served over hot pasta, topped with fresh grated parmesan. It is best made starting in July when the tomatoes are coming in and basil is abundant. When the homegrown tomatoes are gone, so is this dish!

Recipe Ingredients for Summer Time Pasta

2 large tomatoes (dead ripe!)
2 cloves garlic (finely minced)
1/2 c. fresh basil
1/4 t. sea salt
1/4 t. fresh ground pepper (6 grinds)
2 T. parmesan cheese
8 oz. whole wheat pasta

Recipe Directions for Summer Time Pasta

  1. Finely mince garlic and rough cut the tomatoes. Cut basil in 1/8" strips with scissors to keep bruising to a minimum, then cross cut again into smaller pieces. Toss first three ingredients together in a bowl with sea salt and fresh ground pepper and set aside. Cook pasta al dente - drain. Spoon sauce over hot pasta and top with parmesan.

  2. *Steamed clams or shrimp are a nice addition.
