Breezy Summer Pasta

(2 Votes)
30 Min

The contrast of chilled garden-fresh ingredients tossed with hot cooked pasta and a light dressing makes our Breezy Summer Pasta one colorful and flavorful meal idea!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 medium-sized ripe tomatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 medium-sized red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, olive oil, vinegar, garlic, basil, dill, salt, and pepper; mix well. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a soup pot, cook pasta according to package directions; drain and place in a bowl. Cover pasta with chilled tomato mixture, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve immediately.

How about finishing off this light meal with a refreshing bowl of fruit salad?

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I'm thinking I would rather have it hot??

This is delicious! I added Veggies : zucchini,summer squash,chopped broccoli, and instead of red onion I used a small sweet chopped onion.. blanched the vegetables and added to this dish. I served with saute'd chicken. DELISH!!

This is wonderful. I've made 3 batches since the show aired and have shared it with family. Everyone loved it, even a young person not too found of tomatoes.
