Recipe: Healthy Garden Tomato Pasta

This recipe is mine adapted from something out of a Giada cookbook. She doesn't even name it, just suggests things to put in for a light pasta. So here's what I came up with.

                                                         Garden Tomato Pasta
This is a super easy pasta, so incrediably flavorful and healthy! Oh and cheap too! I've been eating this about twice a week lately because it's so good and I LOVE pasta! When I say recipe I use that word loosly, it's more of a guideline. I've been making this just for myself (for lunch or when David is at school) so this is for one serving. Just put in how much you'd like of each ingredient.

 I say garden tomato because all the tomatoes and basil are from my backyard! I just go out and pick whatever is ripe and cut some basil. We are growing red, yellow, purple and white cherry/grape tomatoes and they make this meal look so pretty and lots of different tomato flavors.

pasta (angel hair is my favorite)
butter (I mean REAL butter, you need it for the flavor the real stuff provides & it's better for you)
shredded parmasan cheese
fresh basil (dried would probably be just fine but the fresh helps make it feel more fresh)

put the water on to boil, when it's ready throw in your pasta and salt the water.
While the pasta is cooking, chop your basil and cut the tomatoes in half. I throw everything into my bowl that I'm eating out of.
Cut up about a tablespoon of butter and throw it in.
When the pasta is done put it in your bowl, stir to melt the butter and coat the pasta, add pepper and parm.
 You could add some spinach to this as well, or any other garden fresh veggies if you wanted more than tomatoes. Tomatoes are probably my favorite food so I put them in everything. And can I just say that tomatoes right from the vine is like a little bit of heaven!

Ok, so make this then come back and tell me about it!
Comments make me Happy!
