If you are familiar with the about page, it says that dishes only occasionally resemble pasta and sauce. I would like to request that this dish not be included as one of those occasions. Though it is indeed pasta with a sauce, I would argue this dish is an echelon above and that using fresh tomatoes and basil changes it completely. When I tasted the result, it reminded me of something I’d get at a good Italian restaurant. I serve this more like a side than a main course, so the portions here are on the lighter side. Add a big green salad or a steamed vegetable and you are set.

This is delicious! I made it with home grown orange heirloom tomatoes- fabulous! Thanks for the recipe!
So glad you enjoyed this, Megan! I am intrigued by your home grown tomato success. I’ve just planted my first tomatoes and for anyone that is offering, I’m taking tips for success…
I tried this recipe this past weekend – delicious! So simple, and so good. I grew basil on my terrace this summer, and I used some in this recipe which made it even better. Thanks for the recipe, and I really enjoy your blog.
