Barefoot Bloggers - Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes


Brace yourselves, taste buds. We have liftoff.

This is one of the best Ina Garten recipes that I've tried. I know I've said that before, but they're all so good. Not this one.

It's great. Absolutely delicious, fresh and bursting with flavor. Laziness made me serve it as a hot pasta dish. I cut out the salt, used less olive oil, and added the basil, garlic and parmesan cheese to the food processor to become part of the sauce. Adding the basil to the sauce made the sauce a funny color, but it was easy and the flavor was fabulous. I put the chopped olives, tomatoes and mozzarella in the bottom of a medium bowl and put the hot pasta and sauce on top, mixing the ingredients together. The pasta melted the fresh mozzarella slightly. Oh baby, was it good. It's in the rotation, perfect for quick summer meals.

I have Cat at Delta Whiskey to thank for this amazing pick. If you'd like the recipe, be sure to check out Cat's blog. Or you can get it on the Food Network site here.
