Tomato season has officially begun here in NC (thanks to greenhouses), and it’s something I literally count down to every season! Anytime someone says they don’t like tomatoes I always have to ask, “Have you ever tried anything other than a grocery store tomato?” The difference is night and day from the flavor and wonderfulness of the homegrown variety. Whether you grow some yourself or buy from your local farmers’ market this summer, I urge you to see for yourself exactly what I am talking about here!
Inspired by both my friend Valerie (who makes a pasta dish of her own with mozzarella and tomatoes) and Rachael Ray Magazine (that recently featured a green creamy pasta sauce), I couldn’t wait to throw together this mashup to create a super easy one-dish weeknight meal. This Tomato Basil Weeknight Pasta is an easy one to double, so if you have a bigger family or enjoy leftovers…I say, go for it! :)
