tomato basil pasta

Such a lovely light, summery vegetarian pasta that I enjoy occasionally for lunch or dinner.  This makes enough for 1-2 people.

Tomato Basil pasta

Ingredients:

1 T evoo
1 clove of garlic
1 shallot
1 lg tomato
1-2 T basil
2 -3 T spinach
2-3 handfuls of bowties
couple artichoke hearts, quartered
a squeeze of lemon

Add whatever you like, this is pasta you can’t mess this up.  To keep it simple, you really only need tomato, basil, garlic, olive oil, s + p and some type of pasta.

First, get the ingredients chopped up.  Start the pasta boiling and warm the evoo in a sauce pot.  Add the garlic & shallot to the evoo and saute on medium low heat for a few minutes.  Then, add the tomatoes and cook several minutes on medium heat.  Season with s + p, add the basil and spinach and cook a few more minutes.  Add the artichokes (I love artichokes and try to sneak them in anywhere I can) and squeeze of lemon, along with the bowtie pasta.  Stir together, if you like add parmesan or nutritional yeast.
