Some of my very favorite Summer recipes are the simplest – dishes that rely almost entirely on the flavors of delicious, peak-season produce, and come together in minutes. This rustic pasta dish is just such a recipe.
It takes advantage of perfectly-ripe, sweet tomatoes, and lots of fresh, homegrown basil, tossed together with a handful of pine nuts and splashes of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I used spinach fettuccine for the pasta, but you can really use any flavor or shape you wish. No matter what, you’re in for a big bowl that tastes like Summer.
