Simply the Best ~

I can't seem to get that Tina Turner song out of my head over this dish.  Perhaps it's because our local tomatoes are just coming into Season here and this simple dinner was just one of the best things to hit my dinner table in a long time!

So easy to prepare too.  Just take a pint of heirloom cherry tomatoes, slice them in half and place them on a platter.  Sprinkle a tablespoon of kosher salt over the cut side.  Let them sit for about 15 minutes.  Then julienne a couple of tablespoons of fresh basil and toss with 2 tablespoons of good olive oil.  Add a couple of grinds of black pepper and toss together.

Boil 8 ounces of good spaghetti (or any kind of pasta you like), and when pasta is done, drain.  Place pasta back in the pan you cooked it in, add tomato mixture and blend together.  Let sit a minute to warm up the tomatoes and basil.  Place on a platter and add good, shredded, parmesan regianno.  A nice crusty bread and voila, dinner is ready.

The tomato flavor is sweet and each little one has a slightly different flavor.  What needs to be said about fresh basil?  It's a perfect match with tomatoes too.  And the sharpness of the parmesan... wow!

Now, how can I package this up and pull it out of my freezer in the middle of January?  I don't think that even Einstein could pull that off here in the frozen tundra of our long January days..........  But, that's a long way off for now.

So enjoy, it's simply the best~
