Garden Fresh Tomato Pasta

This week’s recipe is super simple but so delicious! Tomatoes are so nutritious and are at peak across most of the country. We are lucky to have a great variety in our garden –  4 different types of heirlooms and a variety from Italy our friend grew from seed. We had a few pounds ready to be eaten so I made this simple pasta dish for dinner over the weekend and it was a huge success!


  • fresh tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • handful of fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 cup dry pasta


  1. Heat the oil in a pain with the garlic and onion
  2. Once browned, add all of the tomatoes
  3. Turn heat to medium-low and allow the tomatoes to cook down, stirring occasionally.  This will take 15-20 minutes.
  4. Prepare pasta while tomatoes cook down
  5. Once tomatoes are cooked down, add the blasalmic vinegar and basil. Stir and allow to cook for 2 more minutes
  6. Serve tomatoes over pasta and top with cheese
  7. For added protein, top with chicken or steak
