Pasta with Easy Summer Sauce

12 May

This Pasta with Easy Summer Sauce only requires a bit of chopping, and the green beans in the recipe cook right along with the pasta.  Here in Columbia, South Carolina it gets hot.  Really hot.  They call Columbia “famously hot” after all, and they weren’t joking.  The temperature is reliably around 90 everyday, and it’s only May.  So, what could be better in hot weather than a sauce that needs no cooking at all?

Intensely flavorful little grape tomatoes launch the tomato season, but you can use a variety of vine-ripened tomatoes diced into 1/2-inch pieces.  If you wish, use more tomatoes than is called for in the Pasta with Easy Summer Sauce recipe – even doubling the amount.  Just for fun, try making the sauce with a multi-colored assortment of heirloom tomatoes.  Pair the Pasta with Easy Sumer Sauce with whole wheat rolls, grilled zucchini slices, or maybe braised fennel with Parmesan, and serve with lots of juicy fruit for dessert.
