Fresh tomatoes and Basil with Ohio City pastaPosted: June 17, 2011
One of the items that we received last week was fresh pasta from Ohio City Pasta. As I mentioned in the garlic scape pesto post, this pasta is very good and not bitter like boxed whole wheat pasta tend to be. I found this recipe on their website and thought it sounded great and it was. Because there was no picture to go with the recipe, I did not know what to expect. Mine turned out to be more of a sauce than a chunky chop chop. Although the sauce was more below than on top of my pasta pictured below. And the flavor was great!
I forgot to add the recipe!
1/4 cup shallots (diced)
Virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cup tomatoes (diced)
4 Tbl. fresh basil leaves (chopped)
Salt and pepper
