Tomato, Basil, Parmesan Pasta

This week on my Patch Column, "Cooking with Chelsea", I made a Tomato, Basil, Parmesan Pasta.  This dish, simply put, is Summer in a bowl.  It's light, fresh, and easy to prepare- all of the requirements I have for a successful summer dinner entree!

I especially love that it's made up of garden fresh tomatoes.  It's always great to have another recipe on hand to use up your ever growing tomatoes when they're ripe and ready to be picked.

This dish is simple and takes no time to prepare.  Very little hands on time is required.  Only prepping of your ingredients, letting it sit and marinate, and only two to three minutes of stove-top time to cook your pasta.  It's that simple!

Not only is it simple, but it's also so very delicious.  Made up of mostly a garlic olive oil sauce with a bite from the addition of red pepper flakes, it's light and simple, while still maintaining wonderful flavor. I hope you enjoy it!
