This simple pasta is fantastic anytime of the year! Basil Pine Nut Two Tomato Pasta is simple, healthy, and delicious. 

Well, here we are at the end of another year. Perhaps I should be writing something profound and pithy, but instead I am just marveling at how fast time goes by now that I am a adult. It will never cease to amaze me. Suddenly, it’s Christmas again. Suddenly, my baby is seven months old. Suddenly, I find myself goal setting for the new new year.

I love the holidays. Christmas is full of fun, family, and friends. The New Year represents hope for me. I have stopped thinking of resolutions and instead focus on specific goal setting and positive habit development. Little by little. Breaking down big ideas and goals into little bite sized pieces. Being generous with myself-especially now that I am a mom-when I don’t get everything on my checklist done each day or week. Managing expectations in a positive way. This does wonders for my mental health during the long, dark, and cold Minnesota winters.

Some days are easier than others, of course. Sometimes my recipes work out beautifully on the first try. Other days, I accidentally char Mexican black beans in my pressure cooker, thus destroying dinner and need for a back-up plan for food. I like to keep recipes like this in my back pocket for moments such as these.

This recipe is based on a pasta that I ordered on my anniversary date this year with my husband. We were at one of our favorite places to eat, a lovely little Italian restaurant called Va Bene on the shores of Lake Superior. Although simple, this pasta is completely scrumptious. And great anytime of the year!

Ingredients

  • 4 servings pasta, cooked al dente (I used angel hair)
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup oil packed sun dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh basil, chopped for garnish

Directions

  1. Prepare water to boil in a pot to cook the noodles. Cook the noodles according to the directions. (I waited to cook the pasta until the toppings were almost ready because of how fast angel hair cooks.)
  2. Heat oil in a pan. Sauté garlic for a couple of minutes until golden. Add sundried tomatoes and heat through.
  3. Turn off the heat and stir in fresh roma tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Toss the pasta with the tomato mixture.
  5. Plate and garnish with the toasted pine nuts and chopped basil.
