Here's another simple pasta dish that's perfect for a weeknight meal and is a great vegetarian dish as well. Easy, quick and full of flavor. I just love these kinds of dishes, don't you? I made this pasta with grape tomatoes and basil last week and we all loved it.
Salt and pepper
This is like summer on a plate! The colors are so vibrant and healthy; now, I am getting very excited to plant my herb garden. The weather is finally warming up and I have plans to put in a variety of basil (which can be so expensive when buying at the grocery store). Your recipe has really brightened up my morning!
Baking is my Zen
This looks delish! My favorite pasta shape!! Oh, wish I could have some now.
What a delicious sounding dish, I love the extra zing that grape tomatoes add and confess like the "pop" they can make when you bite into them.
So colorful and yummy!loved it 🙂
