Weeknight dinner is a huge hurdle for me after a long tiring day at work. This is a pasta recipe I came up with that is easy and quick with crisp, clean and simple flavors.
3 ripe plum tomatoes, chopped into 1/2 -inch pieces
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
2 tbsp mint, finely chopped
2 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
1 tbsp capers
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried red chillies, crushed
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 pound penne
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
In a large serving bowl, combine the tomatoes, olive oil, parsley, mint, basil, capers, garlic, dried red chillies, salt and black pepper
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente. Drain the pasta and add it to the serving bowl. Toss well, sprinkle with the cheese and toss again before serving.
