Easy Summer Pasta

This dish is so easy to toss together and can be altered to include whatever fresh summer vegetables you happen to have on hand.


fresh tomatoes
parmesan cheese (I prefer shaved)
uncooked pasta, any kind
lots of fresh basil
fresh vegetables (I'm using asparagus)
good olive oil - flavor-infused oils work great for this

Cook pasta in boiling, salted water until almost done - add chopped vegetables (asparagus) during last few minutes of cooking and cook until noodles and  vegetables are done.  Drain.  

In a large bowl, toss pasta mixture with olive oil, lots of fresh basil, and parmesan cheese.

Top with diced fresh tomatoes.
And enjoy a delicious, healthy dinner.


  1. hello looks so ready too eat by the way what is infused oils? what oils do you use love your blog and helping us improve here and there by renee

    1. Infused oils are oils with different flavorings in them. The one I used has red peppers, rosemary, and bay leaves in it. I also have a basil one that I use a lot. You can get them at some grocery stores, Whole Foods, or I actually have found some of mine at Home Goods.
