With summer now in full swing the vegetable garden is loving the sun and everything is growing well - the tomatoes are now in full harvest I'm collecting a bowl of tomatoes every few days. As luck would have it we were given a basil plant a few weeks ago which has been a match made in heaven to go with the tomatoes.
Tomatoes + Basil = Perfect Match
Pete is an awesome cook and made us a delicious home made pasta with these tomatoes and basil - whizzed together some garlic, pine nuts, basil, oil, balsamic, salt and pepper to make the pesto. Cooked some onion and garlic and added the fresh tomatoes. Stirred the pesto and tomatoes through some cooked penne pasta and topped with parmesan cheese. Delicious!
