Summer Garden Pasta and Baby Blanket
Today, I thought I’d focus a bit on a dinner I had recently. My brother and sister-in-law were up from Texas, and she cooked dinner one night, and it was excellent.
Here’s the Recipe
Ina Garten’s – Summer Garden Pasta
3 pints cherry tomatoes/sliced in half
2 heaping Tbls chopped garlic
18 julienned basil leaves/extra for garnish
1/2 heaping tsp black pepper
1/2-3/4 heaping tsp red pepper flakes
2 heaping tsp kosher salt
1/2 cup good olive oil
1.5 cups grated parmesan cheese
Cook angel hair pasta 3-4 mins (use al dente directions). Drain but keep wet and pour tomato mixture over hot pasta mix.
And 3/4 – 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese and toss. Add extra cheese and basil garnish on top of each serving.
My sister-in-law, Lori raved about this dish, and she was right…it’s fresh, delicious and incredibly satisfying.
I’ve been knitting quite a bit, but for today’s blog entry, I only have my progress on the Mini Mochi baby blanket to show.
