Don’t you love summer? When the Texas heat is in full swing, that’s when our gardens and farmers’ markets are chock-full of flavorful produce choices.
As soon as the first good tomatoes appear, I snatch them up. I buy fresh basil and a good-sized chunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and whip up a delicious pasta. The colorful ingredients shine through, making this our summertime family favorite.
During the lazy, hazy days of summer, no fuss one-dish meals at my house mean a quick and easy pasta dish that celebrates the bounty we enjoy in Texas.
This six-ingredient light summer recipe takes full advantage of in-season tomatoes and fresh basil, and pantry ingredients you have on hand. When you want the freshest, most fragrant tomatoes purchase them from the farmer’s market or your picked from your garden are the best! Don’t worry about a little more or a little less of any ingredient – This one-bowl recipe yields 6 or more servings – it depends on how hungry you are!
