Fresh tomatoes and Basil with Ohio City pasta

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
