Summer Pasta Salad

Pasta salad with fresh basil and cherry tomatoes

This summer pasta salad is perfect for picnics and last-minute dinners with friends. The basil and tomato make this dish fresh and light so serving it at room temp is perfect. 


Fresh basil

Cherry tomaotes

Penne pasta

Extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt or Celtic salt


Cook the penne pasta reducing the cooking time on the package by 1 1/2 to two minutes to cook the pasta al dente.  Do not rinse the pasta. 

Toss the pasta with a lot of fresh basil, cherry or grape tomatoes sliced in half ( or any other ripe tomatoes). This can be made ahead.

Toss with olive oil and salt before serving.
