Pasta with al Fresco Sauce!
This is SO easy and SO delicious.
All you need is:
- cherry tomatoes (or any fresh tomatoes)
- basil (or any fresh herb.. dried herbs work in a pinch.. pun intended)
- white wine
- fresh mozzarella
Chop up the tomatoes, garlic, shallot. Season. When pasta water comes to a boil and you've started the pasta, heat the seasoned chopped ingredients on a skillet with extra virgin olive oil. when the garlic and onion are cooked (a few min) cover with white wine. Let simmer until the pasta is ready. I like pasta best when it is cooked al dente. season the sauce to taste. Before covering pasta with sauce I like to coat with some more extra virgin olive oil. When pasta and sauce is plated add the fresh mozzarella!
