After going to the farmer’s market again last Thursday, I wanted to make something yummy with my fresh ingredients but didn’t feel like going to the grocery to buy more things. Found some things I had in the kitchen and made a really delicious pasta dish. Since I just threw it together, I don’t know exact measurements so everything is pretty much to taste. Ingredients
- Linguini pasta, cooked (about 1 cup per serving)
- Olive Oil, once around the pan
- 2 chopped garlic cloves
- Chopped tomatoes (about a handful per serving) – I used strawberry tomatoes (or “orgasm tomatoes” as the tomato guy calls them)
- White wine, once or twice around the pan (I used left over Riesling)
- Chopped mozzarella cheese – I just had string cheese on hand and used about 3/4 of it
- Basil, 3-4 leaves
- Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, to taste
1. Cook linguini according to package directions. While pasta cooks, start tomato mixture in a large pan.
2. Heat olive oil in pan. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant.
3. Add tomatoes to the pan and stir. Let cook over medium heat until heated through.
4. Add wine and cook until reduced.
5. When pasta is ready, add to the tomato mixture in the pan and stir ingredients together
6. Add mozzarella cheese and a few sprinkles of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Reduce heat to low and stir, melting cheese into pasta mixture.
7. Turn off heat and sprinkle with basil. Mix to incorporate.
8. Serve hot. Sprinkle with a little more basil and/or Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese if desired.
So easy yet so fresh and tasty!
