Heirloom Tomato Summer Pesto Pasta | Angel Hair Pesto Heirloom Tomatoes Basil


It may not be burgers on the grill, corn on the cob, or even a margarita on the rocks, but doesn't this just look like Summer?!  During this time of year I am craving tomatoes and basil for every meal.  Last night, I tossed homemade pesto with angel hair pasta and heirloom tomatoes cut into large wedges.  It is the only way to go on a hot summer day when firing up the grill seems unbearable.

The key to success with a fresh dinner like this is : Keep it simple.  The only addition I would add to this would be hunks of fresh mozzarella.  If I was doing this for a dinner party, I might serve it with a skewer of grilled shrimp or scallops. 
Fresh Heirloom Tomatoes with Pesto in Angel Hair Pasta
serves 4

3 large heirloom tomatoes
1 pound of pasta
1 cup of pesto sauce (homemade is so easy - and much better than store bought)
parmesan cheese
fresh basil leaves

Cook pasta 2 minutes short of the directions on the box (or until al dente).  Drain the pasta and place it into a large bowl.  Pour pesto over the pasta and toss.  Add heirloom tomatoes and parmesan cheese.  Toss gently.  Serve with fresh basil and parmesan on top.
