This dish was inspired by a dinner we recently enjoyed at a friend's house. It is one of her family's go-to meals and I think it will be one of ours now too! I do not often eat pasta, but found myself craving these flavors the other day and decided to recreate this dish myself. Of course, I put my spin on it, and it was a huge hit with my family!
It is a very simple and delicious pasta that is perfect for summertime. Since it is just as yummy served warm or cold, I like to make this ahead of time and leave it on the stove to let the flavors soak into the pasta while I cook a protein on the side. As always, you can make this to your own liking by altering measurements and/or leaving out any items you do not care for, or might be allergic to.

Serve with another sprinkle of parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves.
I love to cook. My kitchen is one of my happy places because I get to be creative there. Although I own many cookbooks, I most often throw meals together based on what I have on hand - so it is rare that I make a meal the same way every single time. I may follow a recipe initially, but tend to use them more as guideline and do my own thing. Most of what I make is based on classic home cooked meals that I had while living in France, and my love of market fresh produce. Although we are able to buy many items year round, I base meals on what is currently in season. My philosophy on food is to keep it fresh, colorful, and flavorful. I will be sharing various recipes that my family and I love on this page. In the meantime check out my Instagram stories for regular food posts!
