Saturday

This was dinner ~


Well, almost....

It was a gorgeous, sunny day today.  And I didn't want to spend a good part of my day in the kitchen.  So this delicious dinner with really fresh ingredients can be made in about 15 minutes. 

Add 12 ounces of pasta to a big pot of boiling, salted water and cook as directed.  Save 1/2 cup of pasta water in a coffee mug, no need to measure.  When the pasta is ready, toss it with a pint of grape tomatoes, halved, and a cup of fresh basil.  Add two tablespoons of good olive oil, 1 tablespoon of kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground, black pepper.  Toss again.


Add the pasta water and some freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Enjoy ~


And do what most people do in the summer, enjoy a day at the beach...

Fabulous summer meal, Mary. Thanks for the idea and this should be okay on my diet as well. I am always looking for things that I can digestively tolerate. I am beginning to sound like a broken record but it is now the focus of my life. Sorry, I seem to have used you as a sounding board. {{{HUGS}}}, Carolyn

Thanks Martha, what could be better than the bounty from the garden in the Summer?

Carolyn,

You are lucky because you get a lot of your vegetables for so many months. I hope you are feeling better soon. :)

Hugs to you both.
