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.

Fresh Heirloom Tomatoes with Pesto in Angel Hair Pasta
3 large heirloom tomatoes
1 pound of pasta
1 cup of pesto sauce (homemade is so easy - and much better than store bought)
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.
