I needed a quick family dinner last night, so I mixed up this pasta. The longest part of the preparation process was waiting for the water to boil!
- Put on water to boil.
- Chop tomatoes and add to a large bowl with finely minced garlic, chopped basil leaves, cubed mozzerella, olive oil, salt and pepper.
- Boil pasta according to package directions. Add beans to last few minutes of pasta cooking time. Drain, reserving a little of the cooking liquid.
- Toss hot pasta with tomato mixture. If the pasta seems dry to you add the reserved cooking liquid.
Today's tip: Grab summer tomatoes and enjoy them while they are at their best!
